Last week i setup Cygwin-X on my laptop. I’ve used Xceed as my Xserver for windows for ever. So far this seems faster to me. And it was so easy to setup and get going. I haven’t used any of the local apps much, just connecting to remote servers and workstations. But it does load several things for you to play with.
Today I setup cron from Cygwin on my Win2k laptop and copied several perl scripts from CVS and modified them for win32. I now have my whole development setup locally on my laptop and can sync it quickly with my servers. I did this so that I could grab my laptop and go when I get “the call” 🙂 Not many days left until 2.0 is here.
And just for fun I loaded up the cygwin version of Smartmontools.
