Lots of project such as node.js or neovim are using libuv
(https://github.com/libuv/libuv) which is incompatible with Cygwin.
I've spent some time trying to build it, but I get issues with
The wonderful Neovim project has several opened issues regarding the
portability of libuv (https://github.com/neovim/neovim/issues/873)
It seems Windows are missing some POSIX system calls that Cygwin
cannot emulate possibly regarding pthread. Unfortunately I did not
find any trustable information about the feasibility to build libuv on
Cygwin one day.
I'll take a chance to get some information about this here...
