    Cygwin and Linux

    Normally I write C/C++ on linux but many times I have to log on windows. I dont want to reboot so often. So I use redhat-cygwin for programming C/C++. And gcc3.2 comes along with cygwin. I want to know...
    1 What are main differences between Linux and Cygwin?
    2 What are improved from gcc2.95 to gcc3.2?
    3 I learned that I can't use cin,cout,endl on g++3.2, I must call std::cin, std::cout, std::endl...why?

    Anyone please tell me.
