I got it working, and am sending this email from Konquerer through
Gmail.  You can sense a small performance hit, but not a huge one.
It's tolerable, and might be better had I given linux more RAM (I only
gave it 256MB).

The biggest difference for me vs Cygwin is that Andlinux sets up a
network driver and an additional private IP.  Not a huge deal, but if
you're on a work laptop that has firewall jazz going on, it can be a
pain.  On the plus side, it has all of the KDE tools which can be
helpful if that's what you need.

Since I already have scads of stuff configured to use cygwin, I'll
probably stick with it.  but it's neat to know that Andlinux exists...
