Linux "The problem is, for me, and many other developers, administrators or just normal users, that if you want to use applications from a different OS, you have to reboot and boot into the other OS. Sometimes, when you, for example, just want to do a quick test of a newly compiled application, and go back to work, it is very inconvenient and time consuming. Standard ways of dealing with these problems is either creating virtual machine for Linux, setting up two PCs (one with Windows, second with Linux) or using Cygwin/SFU (Services for Unix). But there is also another way, which allows you to run Linux on Windows natively - coLinux."

No, if you R.T.Fine.A. it states "But if you are someone, who runs Linux because of Blender, other 3d apps, Beryl [compiz] you want to watch movies under Linux – you won’t find anything extraordinary in coLinux. You are better off with standard Linux distro, and Windows in VM."
