Well, that's not too surprising -- Unix has almost always (i.e. right
from its very inception) been commonly used as a programming
environment for other target systems. Rarely is it possible or sensible
to try to go the other way around though.
I would think that Cygwin pales in comparison to the real thing, though
of course I've absolutely no experience with Cygwin (nor any desire to
gain any! ;-).
