 Thanks but I'm afraid this is something other then environment

Personally I prefer FreeBSD for programming but want to use 
cygwin for some windows projects. Personally I'd like to see ms 
os's done away with all together but I have a recording studio and 
the ware I use requires mswindows. What's a sod to do? :-)
