Re: Lovable Cygwin & the Enterprise



May I use the message below in
an article I'm writing on use of Cygwin
and related software (e.g., OpenOffice
-- OO) in the enterprise?

Also, if you'd care to comment further
on how you used PostgreSQL client (PGSC)
in this endeavor, please do so.

Patrick, et al., 

What did you use to do the "push"? PGSC?

Have you looked at 'rdist'
( Will 'rdist'
compile & run under Cygwin?

Have you used 'ssh','sftp', 'scp',
'sshd', etc.?

('rdist' can use 'ssh' as "transport".)

If you'd like to share any more of your
experiences, I'd appreciate it?

What is the range of use, for example,
of OO and other open source (including
Cygwin), by your users? ("range" == #
and pkg/app. E.g.: 9 users of WP in OO;
8, short documents, only; 1 some
technical reports graphics (Gimp for
Windows) with sections and
styles. 2 actually write shell scripts,
1 for the administration of a Linux

Perhaps we should take this interchange,
offline? I'll post summaries, regardless.

Thanks, Lee

OK it official... I love you cygwin!

Upgraded my company's remaining Windows
users off Office to OpenOffice.  Was
having a problem with datasources and
not having a Linux box handy I loaded up
cygwin (and postgresql client).  I was
able to trouble shoot all my problems.
It was great... so great that I pushed a
cygwin install out to all the remaining
Windows users.  I just love this stuff.
