True, but when I'm using Cygwin, that means I'm at work and don't have
a non-MS OS available. Of course I can open an ssh session to my home
machine for sanity (or kicking off a torrent download at home), but I
don't have a *nix-based OS at the day job. Lanching DSL embedded to
use the terminal seems a bit much. ^_^
