Linux On Windows - The Thin End Of The Wedge?

ralph-the-racoon why? why? why? (268 comments)

Lots of people have already made comments along the lines of "widnose == stability && loonix == apps", so I wont, but, one thing:


One of the great things about linux is that you compile apps *for* *your* *own* *system*, which makes them faster. I'd have thought that a complete set of linux .h files, so that you can take linux source-code and recompile it would be more use. The point of running WINE, or similar, is because most 'doze apps dont let you have the code, so you need an emulator type thing. /me gets flamed by people saying "WINE IS NOT AN EMULATOR"!
