Definitely not.  Cygwin is a Unix emulation and as such it is very
different from the W32 API.

It is used for all kind of stuff.  It is actually an alias for _WIN32,
a name some folks don't like to use in connection with Free Software ;-)

If it does not work like a basic Unix system, something would wrong
with Cygwin.  Note, that you need to use aCygwin build of gpg.exe
wiith a Cygwin build pf gpgme - you can't mix them.
