Subject: Re: Réf. : What do I need to make my own .mod ?
From: George Styles (george_at_ripnet.co.uk)
Date: 2002-08-19


I use Windows XP, and tried to run it under CYGWin, which blew up. Not sure
if this has been fixed with more recent builds of CYGWin, but it was a
catalyst for me to start seriously using Linux anyway, so im glad now...

I now feel that is M$ ever manage to make people pay for windows, I will be
able to switch over to Linux and not lose too much...
