Yes that's a good idea. I was trying to get boost Windows regression testing going awhile ago using Cygwin but I ran into some obstacles, then ran out of time. I hope to get back to that task at some point. Meanwhile would anyone be available to do the testing, Intel could supply a licensed compiler. I haven't yet found a way to supply compute resources to go with the license.

Best regards, Melanie Blower

That would not help much if a developer needs to find out why something is not working when compiled with Intel C++ on Windows. Of course it helps for testing.
