I think you use the term support in the wrong field. It is the enduser
who buys support, not the developers.
Also the enduser doesn't buy support to make a product more stable.
It's works the other way. A stable product is choosen by more
endusers, which in return buy more support. So it's Red Hat, who has
to invest into stability of Cygwin to make it as succesfull as
If they don't see a challange in this, than Cygwin is in a kind of
cul-de-sac with Red Hat I guess.
