No! We should not tolerate any performance degradation under Cygwin
WHATSOEVER. Cygwin should run faster than native Linux. Cygwin should run
faster than native Linux on a faster computer. Cygwin running on an aging
Windows 95 486 with automatic virus checking running should run faster
than a brand-new dual-processor Xeon system running on Linux. If the
developers stopped kicking dogs long enough to actually do some work, this
would already be a reality.

that much less :-]) check:
