Pardon my ignorance but what does Cygwin do when you install it on Windoze?

I understand that it provides a set of Unix tools to Win users, but does it
interfere with any normal Windows operations? Is it replacing anything or
simply providing additional commands to a DOS type shell?

Do you have to load those extra facilities each tome you use them or are
they simply a set of commands available through a path link to executables?

Do you have to build/compile it once you've downloaded it?

Do you need to be an accomplished C/C++ user to use it?

I'm just worried about it interferring with normal operations. It would be
nice to run CM in Guile, though.

Sorry about all the questions. I did read the FAQ but it assumed I knew more
already than I did.

Thanks in advance!

tookit instead of xp directly. my guess is that would be the easiest way to
get clm compiled and running on windows
