What is andLinux?
andLinux is a complete Ubuntu Linux system running seamlessly in Windows 2000 based systems (2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 7; 32-bit versions only). AndLinux uses coLinux as its core which is confusing for many people. coLinux is a port of the Linux kernel to Windows. Although this technology is a bit like running Linux in a virtual machine, coLinux differs itself by being more of a merger of Windows and the Linux kernel and not an emulated PC, making it more efficient. Xming is used as X server and PulseAudio as sound server.andLinux is not just for development and runs almost all Linux applications without modification.
The project is no longer developed. Last version, Beta 2, was released in May 2009.
Comments and Reviews
you wouldn't think something like this would be stable and/or performant. andLinux is BOTH. Some are afraid it is abandonware because it hasn't been updated in a while. Don't worry about it. apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, and you have a cutting edge linux system w/ apps integrated directly into Windows.
