It's not me thinking in the bug -> solution pattern here. I don't ask
for a solution.

I ask for an estimation. I ask people that work intensively with
Cygwin, to have a second opinion. Then I can compare it to the
non-cygwin-advocates. So please don't take it the wrong way. I don't
want to start a flame. Would be the wrong place anyway. :-)

If I would sell closed source product, instead of devolping an OS one.

... but than I could advice the customer to buy the Interix layer instead.
