It's way too early for me to be suggesting anything.

When Red Hat acquired Cygnus, the response to "What are you going to
do about Cygwin" was basically "Hmm.  That's a very good question..."
rustle, rustle, rustle <whisper> "What the heck is Cygwin?"

I assume that, if this rumored negotiation is true, Cygwin hasn't
entered the radar yet and may never enter it, even though it does
occasionally make some money for Red Hat.

Regardless, I'm sure I'll be able to find a home for Cygwin somewhere.
I doubt that is going anywhere...
