Lindows is an operating system based on Linux that is supposed to mimic a Windows environment... actually changing names to Linspire....Originally posted by paul8488@Apr 20 2004, 01:46 PM
at a glance it says to me "look at all these good things... i can afford one of them!".
one question... what are 'lindows' (bottom right hand corner)?!? did linux team up with windows?
I'm not sure if it can be installed on an NTFS partition, but it would be better to create a partition for its own use. However, it should be able to read an NTFS partition just fine. The only problem will be writting to it as that driver is still experimental. Microsoft won't help anyone write a free driver for NTFS, so it's all been reverse engineered.Originally posted by frenstall@Apr 20 2004, 04:48 PM
Never used Lindows, can it dual boot with windows on an NTFS drive or does it need it's own partiton? Seems like it'd be something new to try.
Windows, NTFS and Linux partitioning - Automatically!
SC7 includes Partition Commander 6 for full NTFS, Linux, and all other Windows type partition resizing. So creating and resizing partitions are a breeze. And, our NTFS resizing works perfectly with both Windows XP/2000 and older NT versions. This also includes our NTFS to FAT32 converter. Our NTFS converter safely handles all NTFS versions. SC7's advanced conversion technology even handles compressed NTFS volumes, another SC7 exclusive! So, if you need to convert between FAT and FAT32 or from NTFS to FAT32, there's no easier or safer way than with System Commander 7!
