I have been using cygwin since a long time now, but my system administrator recommend that we no longer have cygwin installed on the lab computers because it is "in bad shape". I have also seen this on ROOT's website. "http://root.cern.ch/root/Version522.html" [Broken]" What is this poor state that they speak of? What harm will come if I install it on my home laptop? I have been Googling, but I havent found anything about this.
