Cygwin forum, please?


Hey Jeremy!

A few of us love LinuxQuestions but think it would be much better if we had some place to exchange questions and answers about Cygwin.

Cygwin is an almost-Linux environment for those of us who were dragged kicking and screaming into the Windows world and work there against our better judgment. Many Cygwin executables were compiled directly from Linux source, or only patched a tiny bit, but have special problems and limitations due to the inferior platform they ultimately run on.

There is a good mailing list, but who wants to still use a mailing list after you've seen LinuxQuestions?

So what do you say? Will you help us out by making a special forum for us poor Cygwin users?
