I'm please to announce GoboWing 0.0.4

GoboWing is a enfort to port GoboLinux for Cygwin platform.

Installation instructions:

  * http://stackedboxes.org/~fmierlo/Projects/GoboWing/Install.txt


  * http://stackedboxes.org/~fmierlo/Projects/GoboWing/GoboWing-0.0.4.tar.bz2

Current status:

  * If you follow the Install.txt file you will end in a basic Cygwin
installation with a RootLess Gobolinux running in the root directory
  * The installation run flawless, I think
  * Gobolinux is heavily base on shell script and shell script run
slow as a hell in Cygwin, for example SymlinkProgram take one minute
and a half to start in my notebook and 7 seconds in a Quad CPU @ 2.33
  * cygwin2gobolinux.py is a python script that convert Cygwin to
Gobolinux packages and symlink it, but take 4 hour to run in my
notebook and have some bugs
  * It only run with help of Cygwin tree

Future goals:

  * Run without Cygwin hierarchical tree help
  * Fix slow shell scripts execution or port scripts for other computer language
  * Full automatic and graphic installation
  * When it is done, the GoboWing 1.0 will be a full Gobolinux system
(comparable to 14.01 release in features) native compiled and linked
against cygwin1.dll
