Original OSNews Interviews Orange Crate has an interview with Jim Curtin, CEO of Win4Lin, a company that makes software that allows users to run Windows from within Linux. The company recently restructured, and they have big plans to "play a lead role in un-coupling applications from operating systems and hardware dependencies" and "make end user computing as cost-efficient, stable and secure as possible."

WIn 4 Lin

I love the Win 4 Lin 5 Product but Win 4 Lin Pro is really lacking so far. It's a great idea and it does work but there is no GUI installer or updater. Support Windows 2000 but if you go over SP2 then Windows 2000 gets spotty. And I couldn't get Windows XP to work. :-(

I hope they pull it together. I am looking forward to this product being better.

What I am hoping for is a way to run Windows applications without you seeing that you are running a full verson of Windows. It would be cool if for each application you want to run that you would run an instance of Windows behind it but only require that it use enough memory and CPU as required by the applicaton you want to run!
