I follow the development of ROOT under Cygwin since ROOT-3, and there 
wasn't really big problems: each time, when prompted, they was always 
fixed by ROOT people.

The performances of ROOT under Cygwin are good enough (at least with by 
builds with gcc4 compilers). Obviously Cygwin isn't a native GNU/Linux 
and often the performances are influenced by AV security applications..
