We use the same linux VM on all our developer work stations under a
windows host at the moment. Also for building eCos. No Problems so far.

In the past we also maintained a cygwin-free mingw-based gcc/make
Buildenvironment. But only building ecos applications, not eCos itself.

If you have problems with the moving cygwin target you can also setup
local cygwin repositories with a fixed version where all developers get
their cygwin from.

Best solution for us was the linux VM. Least trouble.
