Linux "Between WINE, VMware, BOCHs and ilk - not to mention the renewed focus on virtualisation we're now seeing - we're somewhat spoilt for choice when it comes to running Windows applications on Linux. But what about the other way around? Cygwin aside, there is another way."

What is this "ilk" they mention at the start of the article?

Between WINE, VMware, BOCHs and ilk (...)

I tried to search the web for "ilk windows linux" but Google yields only Turkish pages. Can anyone give me a hint? Thanks.

It's a fancy way of saying "having similar qualities". So the quote could be written as:

Between WINE, VMware, BOCHs and similar systems

I hope this helps.
