Hmm, Mozilla works fine for me.

It is unlilely that we are going to support Cygwin in the near future.

I expected that because Stevens explains these things in details.  Our
primary goal is to support Free OSes, thus we don't care about other
systems for now.  There are also a couple of other things which won't
work (e.g. the lack of funopen(3)).

We will keep gnupg 1.x alive for all platforms currently supported;
those system will then only miss the new S/MIME and gpg-agent
