Sure, because it's a specially written Cygwin program, not a stock Unix
"ps". "procps", which *is* a stock Unix program ported to Cygwin, can't.

No, there is no such switch. Why would you need it? The Windows
processes aren't likely to have all of the information that /proc provides
anyway... BTW, /proc isn't a mount, it's a virtual directory (which means
it's functionality provided by the Cygwin DLL itself, rather than a path
translation thing). As always, <http://cygwin.com/acronyms/#PTC>, but I
doubt it'll be considered very favorably in this case.
