      Please refer to Step 4. If the packages you want to install are not listed under the software categories, you may attempt to install them from the command line once Cygwin it’s installed. However, keep in mind that Cygwin may have some limitations in this regard. On a side note, if you want to have Python in Windows, just install it in Windows.

  2. @Jeff,
    Of course they do :) – Please note I never said Python and Ruby apps don’t run on Windows, but they are native of command-line environments :).

  3. Python and ruby apps run just fine on Windows. So do Java apps, in general. Where you run into problems is when the applications are binaries, such a C C++ or FORTRAN or COBOL.
