For about a month I have been running cygwin on Release candidate 1 from MSDN professional subscriptions,
cygwin works for me so far but I only use the shell, shell scripts, awk and sed on a
regular basis (gcc and g77 are okay as far as I have used
them) and the cygwin installer happly updated my windows XP cygwin carry over from 2000.
However according to the web page:
The Cygwin environment works under all modern versions of Windows except Windows CE and (currently) Windows XP, although we will probably fix this when XP is released commercially.
I searched the mailing list but found nothing on failures associated with XP. Could some one point out the danger areas?
Plz reply to me directly as I am not on the list.
