According to the Wiki:
"In the past, the RTEMS Project has provided binaries for Cygwin
<http://www.cygwin.com/>. There is nothing wrong with Cygwin, there
are just so many hours in the day. If this interests you sponsor
Cygwin support <http://www.rtems.com/support.html> and/or volunteer
I am indeed interested, and I have volunteered, having written up my
experiences on the Wiki in the past. I certainly understand that Cygwin
has its set of problems, and I risk mortal pain by taking this road, and
I have no expectations of support by the community. That said, I've
gotten assistance in the past, and I don't believe we want to rule out
those who are stuck with Cygwin.
FWIW - I am trying to get away from Windows entirely, but for various
reasons, that road is still stretched out before me...
