Re: cygwin on XP - a POLL.....

Rather than gather this information informally, via the newslist
(And eating up the bandwidth), I would like to propose a poll.  
I will even volunteer to gather the results, correlate them, and
publish them sometime early next week.

So, if you are running Windows XP in any flavor (beta 1/2, RC1/2, etc),
and you have a couple of minutes, are feeling charitable, and would
like to have a voice in the XP issue, please fill this out, and 
SEND IT TO ME!!!.  Do not CC the newsgroup.  I will correlate the
results and publish.  And if opinion wishes, then I will send out a digest
version of all the emails I receive.


1.  What version of Windows XP are you currently running:

2:  What version of Cygwin are you currently running (uname -a):

3:  How did you install Windows XP (fresh/upgrade).  If upgrade, what was
    your previous OS?

4:  Do ALL of the cygwin applications you have used work correctly?

5:  If 4 was No, list the apps that have NOT worked, and a brief description
     of their failure:

6:  Would you like to see all the poll results in a digest type message?

Please feel free to add any additional information or opinions I haven't asked for,
but remember, there will probably (hopefully?) be many responses, and one 
person (me) reading them, so if it's too wordy, I may miss something.
