I've had good results with it. The only bit that I have noticed to be slower
is the intial connection as cygwin actually copies everything when it forks.
There is also the 63 Process limit which will limit the number of
similtaneus connections, and also you have to add a line to the registry if
you want to use a lot of memory. You will also need to download cygipc as
well as the main cygwin distribution.
