Cygwin is a windows app, therefore it uses PE-COFF like all other windows
apps. Reading the list archives would have made it abundantly clear that
there are some things (like lazy linking, if you specify libraries in the
wrong order) that work on Linux but not on cygwin, exactly because cygwin
does NOT, nor will it ever, be ELF.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
