Man, true and quite to the point, though your ending was definately *NOT* a
newbie-friendly response. Those of us were speaking from DIRECT experience
with Cygwin, and purely trying to be helpful. So there is no need to "bash"
on us. If you TRULY had the best interest of this list in mind, you would
have e-mailed the person DIRECTLY, rather than waste the precious time of
the people on this list. Or were you simply just upset at having to delete a
few extra e-mails. Get some more sleep.
