Why would anyone run DosBOX under Cygwin???
64-bit Windows versions do not have any compatibility layer for DOS
I run DosBOX-win32 directly on 64 bit Windows. No need for a Cygwin
POSIX layer here.
You could say the same of many packages. If you want to run MinGW or
MSYS, go right ahead. If you want to use Cygwin as an environment in
and of its own, then the more packages therein the better.
I agree with you, but I can't see the advantage for DosBOX. I would also
not run Wine or VirtualBox under Cygwin. It only adds slowness.
Thanks for porting anyway. It demonstrates how mature Cygwin is.
