this is just tangentially related,
but we have cygwin up and running - working just fine.
However, we have problems when logging in (from cygwin) remotely
to a linux box. For some reason the image displays are working
(e.g., glxgears) anyone have any suggestions?

Both your machines look fine, and I don't have any reason to think that
Cygwin slows down the rest of the OS - it's just an application which sits
there doing nothing when it's not being used, as far as I know.
