Hi Joakim,

Do you know what version of Paramiko (and/or Python) you were using?
As of around 0.0.9 and 0.1.x, Fabric won't work too well with anything
but Paramiko 1.7.4, and as of the 0.9 alphas currently out, it
requires Python 2.5+ as well. It's possible your issues were solely
related to that and not Cygwin -- just a guess.

Otherwise, I know at least a couple folks on the list are using Fabric
on Win32 platforms with at least some success (I believe outside of
Cygwin too), so I'll let them chime in.

All I can say is that I'm definitely interested in having Fabric run
natively on Windows, provided that Python 2.5 and Paramiko 1.7.4 are
present, and we already have a few spots of code where things like
username and home directory are discovered in a Windows-specific
manner when necessary.
