Portable shell code between Cygwin and Linux

Greetings, Corinna Vinschen!

> alias vpnupwin='cd /cygdrive/c/home/sva/config; openvpn --config client.vpn --writepid /cygdrive/c/cygwin/tmp/openvpn.pid &'
Moreover, the very first line is wrong.
alias vpnup='exec sudo openvpn --config $HOME/config/client.vpn --writepid /tmp/openvpn.pid &'
that's where his problem began, IMO.
