It can be true about the SSD and RAM costs but it's not the same kind of 
sandbox too (Wine vs VM). But about the licensing costs I can't understand 
it. Unless you are a cygwin developer that needs to use cygwin mandatory I 
can't see the purpose on using a solution that involves a Virtual Machine 
running a Cygwin installation inside a Windows Guest in a Mac as Host 
Machine. Doesn't it has a lot more sense to install linux on the Virtual 
Machine? No licensing costs at all. Unless I'm missing something and cygwin 
includes something that is not available on linux.
