No. Cygwin runs everything under one process. This will run separate processes for each SSH session, with privilege separation. Cygwin also uses its own /etc/passwd. This will use local windows users, and, hopefully, AD users.

And code will be sent upstream.

Much better if this works out.

I personally had believed that phones crashing was just a joke because my Blackberry literally never crashed or needed rebooting.

Now we know you're a plant, I've had quite a few blackberries since the mid 2000s. Every single one of them have crashed to the extent where I had to remove the batteries.

You can do this in a number of ways. IBM chose to do all of them. Why do you find that funny? -- D. Taylor, Computer Science 350
