andLinux - running Linux in Windows

Posted by ClifNotes, Apr 2008, permalink Operating System


andLinux looks like a good solution for folks who want to get their feet wet with an Ubuntu Linux OS. You don't have to set up different partitions for booting and they claim most of the Linux apps run just fine. You simply download the installer (it's big!) and once you launch it, you go through a wizard that helps you set it up.


I haven't tried this one yet. I'm hoping someone here has tried it or wants to try and will comment below to tell us what they have experienced.


Remember, there are plenty of alternatives to andLinux for Windows users. You can run virtual PCs using MS Virtual PC or VMWare Player. You can also set up an online Linux desktop at one of my favorites, Cosmopod.com.

Quote from the website

andLinux is a complete Ubuntu Linux system running seamlessly in Windows 2000 based systems (2000, XP, 2003, Vista; 32-bit versions only). This project was started for Dynamism for the GP2X community, but its userbase far exceeds its original design. andLinux is free and will remain so, but donations are greatly needed.
