The clue here is, does it only work for this type of OS? If yes then it isn't portable anyway but should it be?

The rule of thumb "does it work on Linux" should be applied to all that you do with Cygwin. If it only works on Cygwin and not on Linux then the chances are, something will change.
I feel the need to correct you slightly. Although Linux is a good model, Cygwin primarily strives to be a good *POSIX* platform, so there may be cases where the two intentionally differ. -- David Macek
