- Subject: Cygwin under Wine?
Can Cygwin currently run under Wine? Why I ask:
While sounding out Cygwin users in my organization, I got the comment:

Which seems a worthy goal :-) But can it be done? Are there
alternative means to the same end (i.e. running cygwin under some
emulator, presumably on a *nix on intel)?
Apologies if this is a FAQ: I didn't see anything about this in the
FAQ (BTW: didn't there useta be a "one big FAQ" option, a lá the
"one big UG"?) or the UG, and a quick Google finds a lot of
not-too-recent posts detailing difficulties and partial successes.
If possible please reply to me directly, as well as to the group.
