As one more data point, I too happily use Emacs on Windows and Cygwin. I
don't use the Cygwin build of Emacs (I tried it once, long ago, and was
disappointed, but I don't remember the details).

I don't claim that using Cygwin is better; I've never tried the native
Windows tools ports. I'm sure that Eli's points are valid. But
`cygwin-mount.el' makes Cygwin play well enough with Emacs for me.

I also use `setup-cygwin.el', which provides a few other nice-to-haves: The file header
references Markus Hoenika paper "SGML for Windows NT", which you might also
find useful.
