Linux After two long years since the last release, Cygwin 1.7 (a Linux-like environment that runs on Windows systems) has been released. Among many other improvement, this release adds support for Windows 7 and Server 2008R2.

What are the chances of MinGW and Cygwin ever merging?


I think the more important question; do MinGW and Cygwin have a place when one considers on one hand there is the UNIX Subsystem for Windows/Services for UNIX then on the other hand there is virtualisation which is getting to the stage where it can be a drop in solution for having integrated subsystem in the operating system itself.
