Wow!  I can't believe you fell for this CGF deception.  There's clearly a 
Cygwin conspiracy going on here and CGF is at the heart of it.  My take is 
that Red Hat is planning a new, beefed up version of Cygwin that will only
be available as a commercial offering.  It will be big $$$ and compete 
head-to-head with the likes of MS Windows and even Linux!  But Red Hat 
won't be releasing this to the Cygwin community for free.  So we'll
all be stuck with only what we can download. :-(  CGF clearly has access 
to this pending mega, commercial version and is certainly using that for all 
his tests, leaving us all at a disadvantage.  I'm sure he's laughing 
sadistically at us even now.  But he's not fooling me!  And he won't get 
away with it!  Mark my words.  CGF is going down.  And Cygwin will be all 
the better for it.  Just you wait and see...
