>          Components: documentation
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>            Reporter: Daniel Vimont

> Cygwin-oriented instructions in the official reference materials (for installing HBase
in a Windows environment) seem to be out of date and incorrect; a number of unresolved/unresolvable
requests for help have been posted to dev@hbase.org and user@hbase.org mailing lists.
> Discussions on dev@apache.org and HBase Slack channel resulted in (1) no volunteers to
update/maintain the Cygwin-oriented instructions, and (2) several "+" votes and no "-" votes
on the suggestion of removing Cygwin-oriented instructions from the official reference materials.
> FUTURE POSSIBLE FOLLOW-UP: For the sake of setting up a development/testing/sandbox environment
in Windows, it might be helpful to recommend the installation of a virtual machine environment
(e.g. VirtualBox) in a Windows OS, followed by the installation of an appropriate flavor of
Linux (e.g., Ubuntu) in the VM. After this, all the standard HBase installation/config/usage
instructions can be followed.
