first CygWin and MinGW are really NOT linux operating systems

CygWin can RUN some ( about 70 to 80% ) of linux programs on Microsoft Windows
BUT ( and this is a VERY BIG ONE) it uses a emulatio0n DLL "cygwin1.dll" and everything has to pass through that ONE file
MinGW BUILDS!!!!! linux source code into MICROSOFT!!!! .exe files and by using "dlltool" can convert the linux "so" files to MICROSOFT.dll's

but it also can only build about 70% to 80% of Linux code

I take it you have NOT READ the very VAST amount of documents on the cygwin website

and there is a even LARGER amount of documentation and guides

type " cygwin " into google and hit enter

mind you cygwin is TERMINAL ONLY !!!

there are NO gui's
no graphics

just the text ONLY terminal

for graphics you need to install X and a desktop
