CVS is smart about line endings.  Text files are stored in the repository
in Unix form (LF only) but are reproduced on the client in the form 
appropriate to the client (i.e. CR/LF on Windoze).

Setting up SSH as a tunnel is easier on Unix.

You DO NOT need WinCVS on windoze, especially if you have Cygwin, in fact, 
I recommend against WinCVS with my people because it's a bulky GUI that
just gets in the way of a proper understanding of CVS!
