I haven't checked the squeak image, but the VM uses the Windows
ReadConsole() and WriteConsole() functions, so it has to be a DOS box
running the console version of the exe, i.e. for Pharo use

For cygwin I've thought of using FFI to call fprintf(1, ...), but
never got around to trying it.

Yes (they're both Debian based).
