Re: Available soon -- Cygwin on a CD

Sorry to follow up on my own email but I have a couple of minor
corrections to my original announcement.

1) The URL is:

2) The place to send non-technical questions pertaining to sales,
   licensing, shipping, etc., is:


>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 , click on the
>"Buy Cygwin" link.  On the "SHOP CYGNUS" main page, under the Cygwin
>section, click on "Community Offer." The password is "SHELL" - and that
>will tag the order for the special price.
>Again, this will not be available until October 15.  You'll have to
>wait until then to order.
>We are calling this version of Cygwin version 1.0 but it is essentially
>B21.  It comes with a number of additional binaries from a standard
>net release.  Currently, the additional tools are not mentioned on
>the web site but they soon will be.  Until then, I've attached a list of
>the additional binaries in the "contrib/bin" directory to this message.
>If you have any questions about things like price, shipping and
>handling, etc.  please send them to .  DJ and I will try
>to answer any technical questions in the
>mailing list (but please remember that this activity is not part of
>our full-time jobs).
>I'm excited about this Cygwin offering and can't wait to see this on
>the shelves of CompUSA, Best Buy, etc.  The box has, IMO, some really
>cool cover art of a shell -- to symbolize the use of a UNIX/Linux
>shell on Windows.
>Best Regards,
>Christopher Faylor
