Is cygwin really "broken in recent releases"?  Does anyone know why?

Cygwin does include a compiler, but it is geared to be used with the Cygwin
environment and DLL to port Unix programs to Windows.  If you are just
looking for a compiler to learn to write Windows programs and don't need to
port a Unix application, you would probably do better going with something
else.  I would suggest going to http://winfiles.com and checking out their
programmer section.  There are free IDEs you can find there suitable new
programmers.

(Cygwin did have the ability to generate Windows programs, but it is
unfortunately broken in recent releases.)
