> Dear Cygwin Community,
> Thanks to your support and feedback, I am pleased to announce the
> commercial availability of Cygwin 1.0.  As you know, Cygwin is a
> UNIX/Linux shell environment and portability layer
> enabling delivery of
> open source projects to Windows.  You already use Cygwin to help
> integrate Windows into your UNIX-based environment and migrate
> applications from UNIX to Windows.
> With the new enhancements included on the CD (see
> for more details), you can now easily review info files
> and man pages.
> In addition, the CD contains a more UNIX-like layout that has been
> discussed and recommended by the community. The compiler
> incorporates
> our Code Fusion technology which includes optimizations
> for the Intel
> Pentium family of processors. I am also pleased that this release
> contains our graphical debugger, Insight.
> The best news is that soon (on October 15) I will be offering the
> community a chance to get the new CD and docs for $20 off
> the "street
> price" or $79 (USD).
> Here's how you get it: go to

> Again, this will not be available until October 15.
> You'll have to
