Well, I started to ask who you were talking about, then decided against it.
Well, thanks Rugxulo.

Given the monstrous state of the Cygwin installer when I used it, as in
size, complexity, "millions" of packages to chose from with zero information
about them, unable to select/unselect the or change the version you want,
forced updating, lost in numerous columns of stupid check boxes, I'd suspect
that DJ would've rather not been mentioned ...   :-(
