Linux "andLinux is a Linux distro with a difference. It's based on a port of the the Linux kernel to Windows coupled with an X server and other software. In short, it allows you to run Linux software seamlessly on the Windows desktop without recompiling it or using a virtual machine."

Nice trick, but does it have real-world use? I can't think of any piece of Linux software that I'd like to run on Windows, and doesn't already have a native Windows port. The article uses Firefox as an example, while their website uses the KOffice suite and a few other KDE apps - all of which already run natively on Windows.
