It's extremely unlikely.  We don't usually try to get Cygwin working on
moving targets.  We have enough trouble with the stationary ones.

The Cygwin web page says this:

    "The Cygwin DLL works with all non-beta, non "release candidate", ix86
    32 bit versions of Windows since Windows 95, with the exception of
    Windows CE."

I guess this belongs as a FAQ entry as it comes up every time Microsoft
has a new beta.

Btw, what this means is that I normally ignore complaints about Cygwin
not working on beta versions of Windows.  I can't testify for Corinna,
however.  In know that in some rare occasions a Red Hat customer might
have an interest and will pay to get something working but this is not
a common occurrence.
