Either should produce exactly the same output.
Mingw will be alot faster to compile.
Cygwin has the advantage of using a posix style filesystem.
I'm pretty sure you can mix the environments. eg. You can use "bash", "make"
and other tools with the Mingw cross-compiler tools.
The cygwin compilers can use things like symbolic links where as the mingw
I'm trying to stick to cygwin only so I know exactly what is going on. It
apparently runs faster on WinNT/2000 than it does on Win95/98, though this is
probably true for any application. I think cygwin is more stable under
WinNT/2000 as well.
