If I remember correctly, we were going to go with just "Cygwin" on the
desktop. I'll have a proper look later.

I kept on putting it off because there was always that one more bug to

the "Cygwin/mintty" start menu entry for every Cygwin user, whether
they want it or not. Deleting it wouldn't help either, as it would
come back at the next mintty update.
