                                           1
Why oh why?

   Market reach!

   Mainly end users

   Future developers




                        2
What's the problem?
    Very different groups

    Very strong opinions

    Lots of incorrect information




                                     3
Convince first
Windows servers actually work

Cygwin is not Windows

Must work with existing tools

Must work ”the Windows way”



                                 4
Compromise to get started
”Zero impact on Unix code”

Proof of concept on Unix

External projects when possible

Start with familiar tools



                                   5
Moving on
Clear boundaries for port code

Move to native implementations

Move to native tools




                                  6
Thank you!
