The Lindows alternative

Author: JT Smith

IT-director.com talks up the yet-to-be delivered Lindows OS. "A quick look at the FAQ page on the Lindows.com website
shows that the aim is to provide an Open Source alternative
to Microsoft Windows that can be installed alongside the
Windows implementation. This gives the user a choice of
OS at boot time. It will then be possible to try out all of the
Windows applications to make sure they work correctly
before committing to the removal of Windows. For proven
environments, there is also the option of a direct installation
onto bare metal with no need for any Windows license."
