There appears to have been an error in the delivery your message. All
that got through was a simple thank-you and a compliment.
Apparently lost in the transmission of your message was the part
following the complimentary thank-you in which you complain about the
idiotic way in which file permissions are handled, the blatant failure
of the "login" and "su" commands, the non-standard tty signal handling
and dozens of other not-too-small defects that collectively show that
the Cygwin engineers (so-called) know nothing about security, Unix,
Windows, C/C++ or probably even what a Turing machine is.
Also missing was the incontrovertible and unambiguous evidence of
Cygwin's utter shoddiness displayed by your perfectly functional Linux
software whose compilation under Cygwin causes the seriously
mis-configured GCC compiler to emit thousands of diagnostics and how
after you managed to squelch them all, the resulting executable not
only crashes immediately after being invoked but also causes Cygwin to
bring your system down with a BSOD.
Could you resend please? We prefer HTML mail with lots of embedded
screen shots in BMP format that depict the multifarious defects in
graphic detail for all the world to see.
Thanks. We'll all feel better when we get that.
