Shell accounts/Linux-Unix Emulators
Posted by diegoeskryptic [send private reply] at June 05, 2003, 06:40:40 PM Besides using a shell account, are there any other ways to use Linux under windows such as an Unix/LINUX emulator. Thanks

It's a big fat UNIX emulation layer for Windows, based on C libraries and ports of all your favorite GNU programs.

Also Linux for Windows might work, [never tried it].
Posted by ItinitI [send private reply] at June 06, 2003, 12:36:54 PM Well, they decided to just make it an easy to use Linux rather than adding Windows support =/
[So now its basically you pay for what normally is free]

Posted by AnyoneEB [send private reply] at June 07, 2003, 12:09:41 PM Lindows includes WINE (WINE Is Not an Emulator) which allows you to run some Windows stuff (I run StarCraft using WINE.), but not anywhere near everything.
Posted by ItinitI [send private reply] at June 07, 2003, 12:54:38 PM Yeah, I think their site has reviews of what people got to work/not work with WINE...unfortunatly Dreamweaver MX was one that _didnt_ work too good =/
Posted by AngelOD [send private reply] at June 11, 2003, 02:54:21 AM WineX is supposedly good.. I subscribed to Transgaming, and thus I have a couple of their releases, but I'm not really much of a Linux user, so I haven't tried it much, and definately not the new version 3.
According to those I know have tried it, it's pretty good, though.
As for the question.. Yes, you can run Linux under Windows, but the (in my opinion) best ways cost money. Using VMWare you can install Linux on a virtual machine on Windows (or the other way around if you fancy that), and even though it's not perfect, it works quite well for development.
