# When will a Windows cygwin version be available/stable

I apologise if this question is not suitable for this site.

As the subject line suggests, I'm looking for any information on when people think a cygwin version of sage which can run on Windows in a reasonably stable way may be available. Any slightly-educated guesses would be much appreciated!!

I've been trying to find a CAS to call home for some time now (after trying Maxima, Octave, Sympy/Scipy in Pythonxy, Spacetime... you get the idea :) ). For my needs, SAGE is superior to all of these in many ways, but the lack of a native port is a significant hurdle, and I've been tossing up buying a student version of Mathematica, which of course I wouldn't want to do if a SAGE port of sorts is around the corner.

Thanks!
