A very different beast. Cygwin is essentially a Unix-like compatibility
layer. So Cygwin Perl usually gets all the bugs in Windows, *and* all the
bugs in Unix. ;)
In my (very extensive!) Cygwin Perl experience, it's much more Unix-like
than Windows-like, but contains enough differences to regularly get in
trouble. For the last couple of years, Cygwin was my primary Perl platform.
Cygwin can be installed alongside Strawberry Perl, and there's no
interaction between them. They can happily exist side-by-side.
All the best,
 With me now having a new laptop, I'm back on Linux.
