Does anyone use cygwin?

I'm trying to get my head around developing on Windows. I've installed cygwin, which allows me (if I patch src/Makefile to pick up /usr/include/ncurses properly) to build ... the unix versions (gcu, x11, potentially SDL and GTK). It seems perverse to install cygwin and then cross-compile the Windows version ... does anyone actually do this? If so, why?
