> yeah, sure - are you seeing any instabilities yet?
After some days working with Cygwin 95% of my issues come from the
side of gentoo. 5% are still to much to run server tasks upon Cygwin.
My target group is the desktop user, which can react immediatly, by
repeating the last task. The Windows PC was full of instablitities
until XP. Yet it was more successfull than IBM in the target group
where money matters. I try to follow the Cygwin path.
Hope to get the gcc compiled today or tomorrow. Also the gcc it is not
an issue of instabiltity but of finding the appropriate configurations
for prefix on cygwin.
