What works


Running programs from within cygwin. ie cat.exe behaves like cat. The shell runs mostly as expected.

What does not

Running Cygwin programs that would use cygwin.dll in Wine does not seem to work properly.


What was not tested

Lots. Cygwin is pretty big, and I haven't tried everything with it yet.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

This could almost be rated gold I think. Would being able to run things dependant on cygwin.dll be a factor in that? My goal is to be able to compile programs using cygwin, and then take them to a computer with windows to run, so I have not really tested everything.
