I personally use emacs under X almost exclusively. But some cygwin users like to use emacs in a terminal. And I occasionally find it useful to do that also (for instance, when I use ssh address@hidden to simulate 'su' in order to make a quick edit). As the emacs maintainer for cygwin, I'm trying to make this work as well as possible.

 If you have cygwin, you have Windows.
 If you have Windows, use the native Emacs.

This is a matter of personal preference. For the kinds of things that I do, I find it more convenient to use cygwin emacs.
