    Cool Cygwin-hosted Linux cross compiler (G++ 3.3.6)

    Hey guys,
    I know most of you support Win32 and Linux, and since I found this link, I thought it would be useful to mention here. (61 MB)

    Note! There is now newer version of GCC avaible with glibc 2.3.2:
    "cygwin-gcc-3.3.6-glibc-2.3.2-linux.tar.bz2 (i386, x86_64)".

    2.1. Copy 'cygwin-gcc-linux.tar.bz2' to 'c:\cygwin' or install directory which
    you selected in setup.exe.

    2.2. Open Cygwin shell and change directory to root with 'cd /'.

    2.3. Uncompress to Cygwin root with command:
    'tar -jxvf cygwin-gcc-linux.tar.bz2'.

    Cross-compilers are installed under '/opt/crosstool'. You can use theim
    directly or with commands: gcc-linux, g++-linux, gcc-linux-x86_64 and g++-linux-x86_64.
    I briefly tested it, and it seems to work. So now you don't have to run a VM (or dual boot) just to compile for Linux anymore, might save you some time.
