Everybody who wants a Linux-like environment is already on Cygwin.

Even if Microsoft is completely honest this time, big corporations have a tendency to lose interest and then you're out of luck. Or a VP may want to show off his/her management skills and 'rationalize' things, 'sunset' some projects.

We'll be stuck with compiling for legacy 32-bit Win32 for a long long long... a super long time. Even after so many years of 64 bit Windows, plenty of stuff have not moved to 64 bits executables.

Dependency Walker is handy for seeing what DLLs are required for an EXE.

A bit like the ldd command in Linux.
