After much though I’m going to try out Cygwin again. Tomorrow my system at work gets upgraded which means I have a brand new system to setup. I will try cygwin first prior to msys and see how far I get.
- I want to make sure I can get a good version of vim and emacs both running in the native w32 gui version of mintty under screen and tmux.
- I want to try out the emacs-w32 binary which uses the native windows gui.
- I want to see if I can get a X session going with XMonad (or FVWM)
We’ll see how far I get. I hope to provide screenshots and a status blog tomorrow afternoon!
