What about it?  Someone claimed in this thread that MySQL's Windows port
requires Cygwin.  Is that true or not?
It's been a while, but I know I've installed MySQL on windows without any separate step of installing Cygwin (I can't say 100% for sure that it didn't install some part of Cygwin transparently to me).
From the MySQL site's page about MySQL vs PostgreSQL:

"MySQL Server works better on Windows than PostgreSQL does. MySQL Server runs as a native Windows application (a service on NT/2000/XP), while PostgreSQL is run under the Cygwin emulation."

That seems pretty straightforward.
