Sygwin, from what I understand, gives you a minimal Unix-like
environment using Windows. For some small applications, it can be good
to have, but it's definitely no replacement for a Linux system.
Basically, Cygwin only provides some useful Unix tools and I believe a
GNU toolchain that can compile some applications, but it isn't a fully
functional Unix-like operating system. It's a bit like using Wine to run
Windows applications on Linux. It's great for some things, and it could
help ease the transition in the beginning, but it's a small step on the
road, rather than where you'll want to be at the end of the journey.
