    Thanks, Earnie. It seems that Free Software really have problems,
and vendor patents are not the biggest of them. Remember one of the
latest Freshmeat editorials where Linux community was compared with
guys kicking each other. Lack of generalization...

     But I write this not to release funny thought (nor to be killed
off from list), but to ask you, as cygwin veteran (as well as other
authorities) whether following will be appropriate.

      I'm going to benchmark as many POSIX implementations as I will
be able to put my hands on (this will ammount to very-very little, and
generally I'd prefer someone else to do this, but I'm afraid noone will
bother). Cygwin will be included. So, will results (with appropriate
disclaimer and links to tests sources) be interesting for cygwin
community/appropriate for cygwin mailing list?
