Winik Release 3 : *nix & Windows Synergy

insphp writes "What is Winik. Winik is a cygwin distro that users can install in Windows like other applications program. Winik is unix like and users can select program from Start button and menus. Users can select other wm such as KDE, Gnome, Icewm, Wmaker, Xfce etc.

Winik give a taste of *nix to windows users. Winik are based on x/cygwin. Users can install Winik modules just likes other Windows application. Winik are modular and users can choose modules that suite their needs.

Winik is free of charge

Winik is an attempt to do something that shows free software doesn't have to be bad.

Winik installs easily on Windows

Easy installation and deinstallation To install Winik you only need to download and burn the Winik CD, then run setup, that's all. It's not necessary to edit any configuration files. It couldn't be easier! If the installation is done correctly the you will get the Winik menu inside the Start menu. If you decide that Winik isn't needed any more just delete the Winik and Cygwin directory and it's completely removed from your system. You still need to delete Cygnus and cygwin from your registry manually.

The philosophy

The philosophy behind Winik is to build an easy to install *nix distribution for users to get into the world of OSS. To make it convenient for users and developers Winik are modular. Winik will lower the learning curve to learn *nix.
