winLinux

i'm getting fed up with people just pushing windows or linux.
common. use the right tool for the job.

Cooperative Linux (coLinux) claims to run linux inside windows - giving you the best of all worlds (no vmware, no wine)

anyone want to try it out?

ya i dunno about that one.
running a super stable complicated os inside a super bugging bloatware os just doesn't sound like a good idea. it is like that stuffed camel dish. sounds like way too much trouble for a horribly bloated dish.

wow CRAP
who has a recipe that calls for an entire camel.
amazing.

I do like the conclusion that ms is buggy and *ux stable - yet have to conclude that ms OFFICE is still the staple of the business world. last i checked, linux had gold achievement on office 200 - and maybe bronze on office 2k3 - i fear there'd be more complications in an office environment to go the other direct (mac / osX users - what are you using for ms office? is it up to speed with office2k3 on the pc?)

nice camel dish! and the elephant joke was pretty good too.

at home I am running OOO (openoffice.org) and yes, you have to put the .org after it. I looked it up.

for what I need, spreadsheet, presentation, and glorified texteditor / formater it is VERY MUCH on par with office97, the last major update to office.

uhhh, office has grown a bit since 97.
