after installing the new 1.1.0 version I recognized the binary mounts created by setup (or the cygwin1.dll). Up to now I worked with the B20.1 and have always used text based mounts and had never problems. What advantage do I have in which situation from a binary mount especially because I read other users having problems with make, etc. ?
I also used to have the following mount
mount $TEMP /tmp
to sync the temporary directories for Windows and Cygwin. Should I prefer here a symbolic link ? Pros & cons for mount vs. ln ?
