I did read that page (amongst my other research), but I guess I'm
missing something obvious - what list is aimed at cygwin "newbies"?
The lists are not so much divided up by experience as by topic. Issues
concerning X go to the cygwin-xfree list, as Brian mentioned. That's
why you were pointed to the lists page. It clearly states what kind of
questions are on-topic for each list.
