A Virtualized Linux System For Windows

SirTalon42 Re:Vs. Cygwin (280 comments)

Yes, it is a potential replacement. It should have far better compatibility (as the apps would be running in their native environment, not a compatibility layer), but it might (maybe) be slower. Last time I tried Cygwin, though, it had HORRIBLE data transfer rates (which caused ClamWin to be PAINFULLY slow), so it's possible the coLinux solution is simply faster (depending on how the distro is setup).
