Phoronix: Cygwin 1.7 Released, Two Years In Development
Besides my sabbatical announcement for the Phoronix Test Suite's benefit, there is some other Windows-Linux news this afternoon. The developers behind the Unix/Linux-like environment for Microsoft Windows have announced the release of version 1.7.Cygwin 1.7 delivers support for Windows 7, multiple Cygwin installations can now co-exist on a system, IPv6 support, the default character set is now UTF-8, support for new authentication methods, and tons of other changes...
The only thing missing is debian for cygwin I hope that with the new release the project will be boosted.

Snake Plisken... er ... cygwin? I heard you were dead.
In all seriousness, wow! a new release after all this time.
I use cygwin at work, since they don't want me to remove windows from my office machine. Not sure I really want to upgrade after the pain of the flaky installer lat time.
I'll probably stick with current until my Windows install or my 6 year old hard drive dies again.
