Re: Which command to bump when M$ is non-posixish

I have no idea!

I have never gotten any conflicts betweeb the X.exe which have common names
under Windows and Cygwin.

At my end it happens only, if I intentionally include C:\WinNT
in PATH in cygnus.bat or .bashrc.

Of course everyone has his/her own requirements and preferences, therefore
he/she must decide what is best for him/her.
