    As I understand it it's like wine but than the other way around.

    I doubt alot of people will use it.

    That's uh.. different. Unfortunately, most Linux users will be put off by the inclusion of Windows and vice versa, lol.

    +1, or at least that's where I'm at with it. I understand that some people would have a use for Windows and Linux combined, but from my perspective, I don't see a point in sacrificing a perfectly good operating system to Windows.

    But hey, to each his own. It's all about freedom.

    If I understand it correctly, it's like a virtualmachine anyway.
    So it is not worse than a virtualbox. You also still have to pay for a windows version and just is now really seamlessly integrated.
    granted I want my linux to stay on linux and those window users should keep their grimy paws off of my kernel, but still its a VM but then easier.
    Approach life & cooking with reckless abandon.

    I'd never use it, but it looks interesting to say the least.
    Cya!

    Looks pretty cool, but too windoish for me to try out though. Maybe this can get my Windows partition look a bit friendlier.

    Re: andLinux - Linux and windows kernel merged into one seamless desktop

    I'm reluctant to try it - it's too much windows for me. I wish I had an icon in my gnome dektop to launch windows apps or games. As it stands, i have pretty much the same with Xming, cygwin and ssh with X forwarding to a Linux machine.

    Still an interesting idea I guess.
    The truth may be out there, but the lies are already in your head.

    Yeah I would like to see this reversed. I would like something like this to run some windows apps on Linux without needing a whole virtual machine.
