Unfortunately, there are probably many people who can't appreciate the
difference between a few lines of text and an animated Flash ad that
somehow manages to use up an entire Pentium to animate snow flakes

Does the hippo try to download an OCX or put viruses on my machine?

BTW, the cygwin documentation is very light on OCX support.
