I've always thought of Cygwin as

1) an excellent way to run the Unix-like tools that I know and love and

2) a useful intermediate step while porting an app to Windows.

Now, except as a quick first step to achieving (2) I don't really know
why anyone would put much effort into "porting to CygWin". Isn't part
of the point that most things will just automatically work under
CygWin so that you get (1) pretty much for free?
