Can someone provide some comparison info from a performance point of view?  I was thinking that the Cygwin port has the overhead of the translation layer, but 8.0 is a newer product and may still have performance issue.  Can anyone comment on this?  

Well, the performance issues of the cygwin-based releases are the stuff
of legend ;-).  New product or no, this is really a no-brainer.
