Maybe so, but it seems to me that anybody who is either deeply into
DJGPP or is just beginning would want to at least take a look at
what Linux provides as an alternative to Microsoft Windows and
Microsoft's upcoming replacements. I don't see this AFFECTING
the future of DJGPP, as such, but it could COMPLEMENT its
future.

When we are in our DOS/DJGPP boot-up and we hit bash [Enter]
even then we are in an environment that is Unix-like. And Linux is
Unix-like.
