I don't forge headers, and "not entirely seriously" != "just for a 
laugh".  If GNU tools are installed on a Microsoft Windows machine why 
should they not get credit? why should Cygnus not get credit either? It 
was mearly a sugestion, you seem to have taken it out of context.

Well this email seems to be degenerating now, but "Windows" can mean 
more than a MS OS as that is the most common meaning, X Windows is one.

I agree with what Chis Tooley said in his email though, he seems to have 
recieved a copy of the email as well, or did you just forge the header?
