OK, you've just posted to this group for the first time.  You're ignorant of
some basic things about Cygwin and DOS.  Well, that's no sin; people will help
you if you're polite.

But you obviously haven't read the Cygwin documentation, or you would know the
answers to some of your questions.  So now you're starting to irritate people.

And what do you do next?  You insult the project co-leader-- a person who,
unlike you, has earned considerable respect on this list-- and say that
everything must be her/our fault!

Congratulations, you have just alienated the entire community of people who
might have helped you, in your very first post.  This is quite an
accomplishment, I've only rarely seen it done.
