Welcome, poor child of a big blue button. Let me introduce you into my world.
The world, where file managers help you manage files.

Right now, I hit Alt+Shift+D, which invokes a short macro calling menu entry
view:<? diff -x "CVS" -x ".svn" -I "\$Id.*\$" -I "\$Rev.*\$" -I "\$Date.*\$" -I "\$Author.*\$" -I "\$URL.*\$" -I "^Orbiting .*$" !?$UnixDiff$Options ((-c, -b etc.)):?! --strip-trailing-cr -- "!#!\!.!" "!^!\!.!"
and get two files (or directories) on opposite panels diffed into an internal
viewer. Because Cygwin diff consume normal Windows paths without an issue.
