I recently downloaded Cygwin so I could easily use gcc. It installed correctly, and gcc compiles programs and reports errors as expected... but I can't help but notice that it appears to be taking an extremely long time to load the environment each time I run cygwin.
Whenever I run Cygwin, it takes a good 40-60 seconds for the cygwin command line to finish processing and start accepting input. Is this normal? If not, what might be causing this long wait time? Clearly, I don't intend to do something extremely time sensitive, but this remains an annoyance, and I'm wondering if its fixable.
I'm on a laptop running windows 7 32-bit. Could processor power (or my relative lack thereof) be the underlying issue?
