    I would just like to confirm that i successfully compiled the toolchain on vista vmware (from my mac) using cygwin + mingw + some misc ports of things, some extra libraries, and a filesystem dump from my ipod 2g.

    No one said it was not possible. Lots of people compile using cygwin.

    Actually, that's not true. A ton of people have been telling me that it is impossible and that they could not do it. I'm just saying.

    People also said that about the 1.x toolchain. Many people never even built it themselves and relied solely upon binary toolchain installers.

    Right. I have nothing against the installers but I prefer to do it myself, because it's more fun that way
