Hey Rob,

There might be some new options now that python is around, and win7 might
have new goodness. But basically you can transplant all the goodness of your
linux land bash scripts and environments straight into cygwin.

Life's a little weirder, with drive mappings mostly. But it's sure worth
trying it out.

I'm very keen to hear how you go, since at Kanuka we're finally moving over
exclusively to windows (and 3ds Max) and finally ditching linux for good.
