No, *any* drive letter strongly implies you're using Windows, and the
vast majority of Windows users use CVSNT (whether they know it or not).
Most of the remainder use cygwin, so you're in a very small minority.

There aren't any chips on shoulders, but CVS and CVSNT are different
enough that you really do need to post to the correct forum to get the
best answers, but most users don't realize that and post here
regardless.  Arthur has taken it upon himself to redirect the lost and
clueless to the correct place and sometimes jumps the gun.  Since he has
a vested interest in CVSNT, that's understandable if not entirely

Since you are, as I said above, in a very small minority, it *would* be
helpful in the future to add a quick note clarifying your environment to
avoid confusion and spurious suggestions.
