I use Cygwin primarily for secure remote console access to Windows 2000
and 2003 servers. If you are serious about security, a tailored Cygwin
installation can enhance Windows' capabilities in important ways. Since
the GNU sources are well known and their compilation process can be
audited, Cygwin has an added measure of trust not available from other

Robert it right about setup.exe being twitchy. I'd like to have an
option to refer to a package install list separate from setup.ini. That
way I could lock down what gets installed and what doesn't. I don't want
compilers and other development stuff resident on a production server,
no matter what OS it's running.
