Cygwin != Linux on Windows.

Cygwin is a set of tools that makes the Windows environment look and act like a POSIX-compliant one (which is my favorite reason for when people say that NT is POSIX-compliant -- if it was fully-POSIX, then why would Cygwin be required?).

It's one of those minor gotchas...
