Thanks for the link ... ;-)

So, I am of those guys who thinks he is "awesomely clever". Right?

    "because enthusiasts who think they are so awesomely clever, looooove
     disabling anything that makes the computer look pretty, because they're
     convinced that effort making the computer look pretty is clearly done
     at the expense of performance."

As I do not want to be "stupid", I enabled for "best appearance" :-))

As I totally do not appreciate the eye candy I got after enabling for "best
appearance" , I decided to select 'Windows Basic' (Personalization).

Guess what? 'mintty -D' crashes ...
