coLinux gets its second wind

,----[ Quote ]
| Cooperative Linux (coLinux for short) occupies a unique niche in the field of
| virtualization -- that of running GNU/Linux natively in Windows. Although
| begun in 2000, the project has only recently released version 0.72, but it
| has given the underlying technology to several other higher profile projects
| such as andLinux and Ulteo Virtual Desktop. Now, with the current interest in
| attracting Windows users to GNU/Linux, as evidenced by such tools as Ubuntu's
| Wubi and Fedora's Live USB-Creator, the technology behind coLinux seems
| overdue for a closer look.

| occasional BSOD or problems with graphics – coLinux is solution for you.    


Introduction to coLinux: Linux on Windows, Literally

,----[ Quote ]
| Any program that runs on Linux will run on coLinux, although there
| are a few limitations--mainly, programs that use graphics won't run
| at full speed, since the X terminal has to run on the Windows side,
| and support for audio is marginal at best. That said, applications
| which don't rely on audio or graphics can run more or less at native
| speed: database applications, Web servers, command-line/shell
| programs and so on all work at normal speed.


Colinux on Windows Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| In the last years colinux became one of my most valued tools for
| cross platform software development. Colinux is a user mode linux,
| running as a Windows process. This way you don't need to dual boot
| anymore. And while other virtualization techniques exist, colinux
| has some advantages that makes it my top choice.
