Does anyone out there use Cygwin only for windows development?
I did all my development under "cygwin only" for the last 12 months.
However recently a number of patches have broken it and I was spending
too much time fixing these problems.

I also got the impression I was in a minority of one given the
feedback I (and others) got from questions to the list.

So I have unfortunately had to ditch "cygwin only" and go MSVC6.

P.S. If you still want to try this route I can dig around and see what
I did for libpcap.
