hopefully this is not the start of a flame war ......................
I just wanted to know if the intentions to make a CygWin based
port of Debian are alive. About half a year ago there
was a thread on this topic. I think CygWin has developed
since this time.
The background of this question is:
A certain number of us have to deal with W$ in their job. I
belong to this number and use CygWin for certain tasks. I'd
much more use UNIX stuff if I had an easy to install Debian
system and would not have to install each package separately.
Unfortunately I don't have enough time and knowledge to port
basic Debian tools, but I'd like to ask. Perhaps we could
start a talk with the Cygnus people if they like the Debian
idea and do some essential work themselves.
If someone asks: Yes, I like my Debian box more than my NT-box,
but why not doing something to make it more comfortable than it is
and possibly convince people how comfortable an OS could be. Pleace
don't tell me that Win sucks.
