It's running now behind the Windows NAT so it's not really serving anything at the moment. In all I think it's great! Thanks for recommending coLinux. I had it on my computer but it was on the back burner till I read your blog. To carry on the traditional M$ debate. . . Windows doesn't blow. I like NTFS for example. It's polished and if you need a computer to do some useful work you cant waste time experimenting and configuring. OTH the gui for networking objects takes as much time to learn and debug as flat config files and the scripting support leaves something to be desired. The money you pay for one copy of XP is worth it though. CoLinux + XP Pro would make a nice home-enterprise (if there is such a thing as a home-enterprise) server. The idea is that you could still have LDAP, a PDC, and all the other goodies and not have to dedicate a computer to an OS that. . . well never mind. I love linux but, my god for the time I spend with it. I have some configuring to do! Cheers! Just thought I’d write this while I’m still a little excited about coLinux.

Why 1) SECURITY - Windows just blows 2) Eash of Updates 2) Inverse hardware support 1: Architecture - I have an AMD64 and would like to put it to full use. 3) Inverse Hardware problem 2: I have a cd writter that works in linux but not winXP.... In my world, GNU/Linux is actually a more advanced and functional OS than any Mirosoft product. ...just wish XEN would release a win XP patch or that Quemu were a little faster. -Jason Unfortnately, not the alternitive for me. Why
1) SECURITY - Windows just blows
2) Eash of Updates
2) Inverse hardware support 1: Architecture - I have an AMD64 and would like to put it to full use.
3) Inverse Hardware problem 2: I have a cd writter that works in linux but not winXP….

In my world, GNU/Linux is actually a more advanced and functional OS than any Mirosoft product. …just wish XEN would release a win XP patch or that Quemu were a little faster.
