You're right.  I actually thought about adding smilies or a disclaimer
at the bottom but then thought that would ruin the humor.  I thought the
idea of moving Cygwin to Linux would be absurd enough that everyone would
get it.  But I suppose if you read it quick enough, the absurdity might
not sink in.  My apologies if anyone else became distraught by my attempt
at humor.
