Limitations

Cygwin is a Linux-like environment for Windows. The Cygwin DLL works with all non-beta, non "release candidate", ix86 32 bit versions of Windows since Windows 95, with the exception of Windows CE. It consists of two parts:

  • DLL (cygwin1.dll) which acts as a Linux API emulation layer
  • A collection of tools, which provide Linux look and feel

"Educational Simulator"

I want to learn how the install a UNIX-like operating system on a Windows 7 platform. When loading Cygwin, will there be output messages similar to the ones output during a real install of Unix software? I am excited that I found this site. To good to be true.
