I don't know about the original poster, but I wanted to try using Strawberry with cygwin just so I could use a more recent perl version than the one you can get with cygwin. It was either: (a) use cygwin's latest perl, (b) make Strawberry more convenient to work with cygin, or (c) build perl from scratch. After trying (b) for a little while, I switched back to cygwin's perl. Then later I started using perlbrew to have multiple distributions.

The windows command line (old style) is just too primitive to use, and the power shell (new style) is too different to bother with. Most of my machines are linux based with bash, so using bash and cygwin is the best fit for me.


When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.
