Yes, I've always been amazed at how well the first FAQ "What is it?"
(http://www.cygwin.com/faq/faq_1.html#SEC1) covers for the *true* nature
of this project. If I read this FAQ entry, I would be lead to believe that
Cygwin is a set of GNU tools that help me build Windows programs or port
UNIX programs to Windows. Quite a clever deception!;-)
