Yes, if you truly restrict yourself to ANSI C and don't depend on libraries
and non-ANSI include files which invariably differ from cygwin. The cygwin
developers have done an amazing job of making cygwin into a standard gnu
compiler host, so you get excellent cross-platform compatibility. This goal
fortunately appears to be kept in mind by most of those who are working at
the same time to get more Windoze compatibility.
