Chris wasn't saying he didn't believe anything you say. Chris has
infinitely more credibility when it comes to judgements of Cygwin
complexity than you, and he simply indicated that he believes your claim
was wrong. It's unfortunate that you were insulted to have this pointed
out to you, but it's true.
I've no idea whether you snort because it's more or it's less complex,
It's clearly less complex. Linux is an operating system. Cygwin is a
shell on top of an operating system; a rather thick shell in places, but
just a shell nevertheless.
One might argue that Win32+Cygwin is more complex than Linux, but that's
really academic, because the Win32 part isn't open to change. It's a
constant in the function, so when differentiating it (i.e. finding the
complexity slope) it goes to zero.
