I'm not, to my knowledge, using cygwin or anything like it.

But you do have Cygwin or something like it (maybe msys ?). Nothing else is going to report a path that begins with "/usr/bin".

I have both Cygwin and Msys:
C:\>which which 'which' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. C:\>set PATH=C:\_64\msys64\usr\bin;%PATH% C:\>which which /usr/bin/which C:\>
and, for Cygwin:
C:\>which which 'which' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. C:\>set PATH=C:\cygwin\bin;%PATH% C:\>which which /usr/bin/which C:\>

    I took a look at my path variable. Turns out I have something called MinGW, so MINimalist Gnu for Windows, installed. It shows up right after Brackets' Path entry and before a whole stack of earlier Strawberry perl entries.

     which which returns:  usr/bin/which

     which perl returns: usr/bin/perl

    perl -e "print$^X" returns: perl

    Note, this is only true if I open a default windows terminal; if I use the portable shell executable packaged with portable Strawberry perl, which perl gives me the correct file path (to my desktop, atm, where I unpacked portable Strawberry perl).
