My open utility plays nice with UNC paths...
I think I wrote open many many years ago (before I even started using
cygwin) and I've just been carrying it around with me. I added cygwin
path support when I started using cygwin.
I've added an alias to alias open to cygstart (I use gnome-open under Ubuntu).
Thanks for the tip.
