Re: Cygwin for Fedora?
My intent is not to emulate the low-level operating system API, it is rather to
emulate the *environment* consisting of packages and programs, their versions, etc.
For example, instead of just imagining that I have taken care of these
subtleties ( http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/highlights.html#ov-hi-perm) in my
programs (and possibly others), I would like to actually be able to test them.
And, as I said, instead of asking for access to a Windows/Cygwin node from my
sys admin, it would be wonderful if I could achieve a "Linux on top of Linux",
weird as it may sound.
So, this need for cross-platform compatibility (of my scripts) (between just the
two of Windows and Fedora) may not be entirely unwarranted. Somewhat like the
concept of cross-compilation for C programs without access to a physical target.

Instead of asking for access to a Cygwin/Windows PC just for the above, I
thought it would be terrific if Cygwin could somehow be installed /
emulated on a Fedora.
