Re: Hosting the Debian/kCygwin port?

Hi Carson,

Shortly after that e-mail, I concluded that running Debian within Cygwin
is not possible, as it was impossible to update the system while it was
running. This is because on Windows, removing an in-memory shared
library file then writing a new one with new contents, would somehow
have an effect on running applications, causing crashes because of
addressing problems. (In other operating systems, the old file stays
around on the disk while it is in use, and is only removed when the last
user closes it.)
