I realize this is sacrilege, but...somewhere in my archives I have an
old copy of full.exe from B20.1 (as well as the ancient cygutils add-on
packages; while the webpages for B20-era cygutils still exist at
http://cygutils.fruitbat.org/OBSOLETE/B20/index.html, the tarballs do
not. I still have 'em somewhere...)
I ought to install it on XP or Vista and see just how awful it really
is, compared to modern versions. [/bad sacrilegious Chuck. No cookie!]
