I currently don't use any of them, but I know what Cygwin is, but the
others are new to me (time to do some reading).
I think that I start with some kind of Linux variant, probably like Red
Hat because I have that on CD (first I need a new monitor for the box).
Any other tips for me?

I will give that a try, when my system and I is ready for it.

I need to build both, but the RAM drive will only help for like 5% of
the runs, because I think that I need to compile a lot more debug
builds. Opt (as in optimized) builds are usually for customers only right?
Thanks for all the info/help,
