I’ve had Cygwin installed on my
laptop for a couple months now, but I’ve only recently begun using it.
It all started with discovering that rxvt can be used as a terminal,
replacing the god-awful DOS-like window that is the default. I’m now
running VIM, rsync, mutt, SSH and more right here on my Windows machine.
It’s cool, and it helps alleviate some of the TiBook envy I’ve been
experiencing ever since Steve and
Bryan got their shiny new
machines running OS X.
