I'm actually sad to hear that. Interix may have been ancient and a bit
weird, but it was *so* much nicer than Cygwin...

I suppose it was... passable... while it lasted.

(Incidentally, people here may be amused to know that a while back, in a
fit of insanity, I did an ELF binary loader for Interix that would run
unmodified Linux executables. Sort of. Turns out it was only really
useful as a stunt, but it was an impressive one. See
http://lbw.sourceforge.net if you're interested.)
