What is Lindows???
 
Hi, I've read somewhere that Lindows is a Linux very similar to Windows, is it free? Where can I get hold of it?

How does it work? Like Linux or like Windows?

why not go read the lindows.com website or search this one, instead of just blindly asking the same question again?

btw. we all hate it. it costs $99

lol, you got the greates sense of humor bro acid_kewpie, :D

yeah, we all hate it and it costs 99 per year...like acid said.
Look in the next two pages of the threads...we talked about it a lot, and also we said what we thought about it, so go on look, :)

Thanks for the info but if you don't like my questions just don't answer them.

I'm working right now and therefore I've got no time for surfing the net so I thought I'd just drop a question in the forum, full stop. Isn't that the purpose of a forum?

Cheers zlinuxz.

hey, that's the purpose of the fforum, but as you say, the purpose of the posters is not to answer the same question dozens of times! :D

as to my opinions of lindows: i hate it, it costs $99 (and that's for the unstable copy, you pay for the privelege of sending in bug reports!), they are 6 months late delivering the final version, they are trying to get it to run windows apps natively without even knowing what all the windows calls are (only micro$oft knows that)

Quite frankly, i have seen far too many people posting with things like "i'm a bit of a newbie so maybe i'll just get lindows". Quite frankly i say, if somebody seriously thinks lindows would be best for them, then it probably would. Problem is that those dumbasses will probably all be saying "oh yes, linux, didn't like it, i tried lindows and hated it" in a few years' time.

Lets try to get the questions in the correct forum please. This has been moved cause it belongs more in the distro forum than the general.

well no i don't really think that's what a forum is for. a forum is for finding out information that you are unable to find elsewhere. there is a wealth of diverse opinion on this site and the net as a whole about lindows. Many members sometimes find it somewhat insulting that some people "drop a question" and wait for the cows to come home.
