I hadn't heard of it either 'til today. According to the MinGW site:

"MSYS: A Minimal SYStem to provide POSIX/Bourne configure scripts the
ability to execute and create a Makefile used by make."

Doesn't sound like it's designed to be a full-on interactive
shell. Google seems to indicate a few other things don't run under it

Is msys really designed as an additional shell? or just a bootstrap
environment for to be able to get builds going?
