Red face x11 not working on cygwin help me plz


I am fed up with the default Windows interface so I decided to install Cygwin and run a gnome shell on startup. when the installation was done I went into Cygwin and started x with this command
xinit gnome-session
and I got this error the shell shortly closed

and this is the output log

I think it has something to do with display drivers but I really don't know
when I was installing Cygwin it came up with an error but stupidity I pressed ok without reading it so help

interesting choice.
if you just want to try out linux, a virtual machine would probably be easier (virtualbox).
or create a bootable live medium (usb) and boot from that - it will leave your windows installation intact.
