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.
