I think I do.  And it is as I suspected.

You're asking about application functionality.  This isn't a Cygwin-specific
question so it is off-topic for this list.  I believe you're really looking
for a framework for application development.  You may want to have a look at
QT, wxWindows, GTK and friends and other such toolkits.  You'll find QT3 and
GTK packages as part of the Cygwin distribution but you should really see
each toolkit's web site for complete information on what's available and
how it can be used.
