I use it.
The only issue I find with them is their peculiar trinary logic.

In reality we have 2 questions:


When I need an experimental version of cygwin and there is a
experimental bunch of perls (for example)
it will more easy to "keep" and upgrade only cygwin than
"update" and deselect all the tons of perls

Other layout pitfall (IMHO)

"view" button should be on the left not on the right.

"search" is in reality a "filter" and could fit better
near  "select packages"

The new logic works fine.
I have a bunch of custom X libs for debugging purpose and
they are not automatically select for "downgrade"


PS: the cygwin web site seems very slow. Is it just my connection ?
