Was wondering with major changes to the base distro of Windows Server
8/2012 is anyone running compatibility tests on the platform and if so
what observed results were? Will or Does Cygwin run on Windows Server
8/2012? I have seen some comments about difficulties with Cygwin on
Windows 8 desktop but have not heard much about Server Edition.
Trying to determine if Cygwin latest release is an option to run
Unix/Posix Products on Windows Server 8/2012
Are there any efforts to make 64bit Releases under consideration?64-bit does not make things go any faster than 32-bit. 64-bit is
wasteful as programs grow to double in size. 64-bit is only
required/useful/etc if you have memory requirements > 4 gig. I don't
think any Cygwin executable has such requirements...
The reason for the question is it does not make sense to have a 64 bit
Server with a 32 bit emulator for POSIX running any major products on
any Server Operating System Product.
This is like having Porsche running with a small VW Engine under the
hood. Yes it is hopped up and can run fast. But it is not going to
run like the turbo charged Porsche. So why pay the price of a Porsche
when you really are running a VW?
