Just glanced through the discussions, sounds like the blind leading the

To summarize the discussion:

Something about users setting up some apt thing simply because they
didn't know setup.exe could add packages.

Gow is advertized as a Cygwin replacement, IMHO a poor replacement if it
aims to follow in the gnuwin32 footsteps. I also like how they mentioned
MSYS+MinGW32 is a capable replacement for Cygwin if somebody needed GCC
