Not strictly speaking correct. Cygwin by itself is a
unix environment. Both X-Windows and KDE can be run
under cygwin on Windows and have been done. The last KDE
version I heard of being run under X-Windows on cygwin
was KDE 2.1.1, so that's pretty recent. Both of these
projects are on sourceforge I think. If you can run X
and KDE then you most likely can run BibleTime under
cygwin. It's just a rather round about way of doing it.
Hope that helps.
