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!  ;-).
