GRASS ports to Microsoft MS-Windows
Option 1: Native winGRASS GIS (no Cygwin needed)
The GRASS Development Team has prepared a "native" port of GRASS to MS-Windows.
It is based on the MinGW environment.

Option 2: winGRASS GIS with Cygwin
- NOTE 1: While generally it is not a problem, GRASS does not cope (yet) with spaces in
directory and file names in all cases. Take this into account when installing GRASS on
MS-Windows if you are experiencing problems.
- NOTE 2: When selecting the root install directory, make sure that
the "Default Text File Type" is set to Unix.
- NOTE 3: You must install/compile GRASS on an NTFS partition
(FAT will not work!)
