So I was having a problem with a cygwin installation. I couldn’t figure out what was going on. Two minutes of googling later, I’d found someone with my exact problem, who had solved the problem and posted to the cygwin mailing list:
“I just wanted to post this in case someone else runs into this issue like I did.”
Thanks, William Voyek!
The moral of this story:
Google is Awesome (given the right search terms, and sometimes even without the right search terms, it finds what you want a lot of the time… quickly).
Open Source is awesome. (How else could you get a nearly complete Unix environment running on a proprietary OS like Windows?)
Collaboration is Awesome (William posted just because he wanted to help others)
