Thread: Lindows

  1. #1
    I just heard about lindows, a linux/windows combo OS. Is it worth getting? Is it compatable with programs and an easy transistion? Thanks

    I heard it is very unsecure since you always run as root but it will install the whole thing in less then 3 minutes now that is impressive.

    oh yeah and they are being sued by microsoft over the name, so they will probably change their name real soon.

    edit: here is a review of version 4.0 but version 4.5 was released on the 16th so it will be a little out of date.

    I just installed lindows laptop edition, it took about 20 or so to install, but it didn't recognize my usb network card
    seemed nice, I had to just reformat and put 2kpro on it, thing is the usb is supposed to be Linux compatible well it said red hat 9
    but it was over my head and could find anything after a hour of goggleing

    sounds like you need to make sure you have the usb module loaded in your kernel.

    I have no idea what that means really but i have heard lots of other people say that about my linux usb problem

    they would probably sue a glass windows company if they called their business windows
