I purposefully said "and licensing" though, because the Windows license

It can be true about the SSD and RAM costs but it's not the same kind of
sandbox too (Wine vs VM). But about the licensing costs I can't understand
it. Unless you are a cygwin developer that needs to use cygwin mandatory I
can't see the purpose on using a solution that involves a Virtual Machine
running a Cygwin installation inside a Windows Guest in a Mac as Host
Machine. Doesn't it has a lot more sense to install linux on the Virtual
Machine? No licensing costs at all. Unless I'm missing something and cygwin
includes something that is not available on linux.
