Run Linux inside Windows

andLinux is a complete Ubuntu Linux system running seamlessly in Windows 2000 based systems (2000, XP, 2003, Vista; 32-bit versions only). This project was started for Dynamism for the GP2X community, but its userbase far exceeds its original design. andLinux is free and will remain so, but donations are greatly needed.

andLinux uses CoLinux as its core which is confusing for many people. CoLinux is a port of the Linux kernel to Windows. Although this technology is a bit like running Linux in a virtual machine, CoLinux differs itself by being more of a merger of Windows and the Linux kernel and not an emulated PC, making it more efficient. Xming is used as X server and PulseAudio as sound server.
andLinux is not just for development and runs almost all Linux applications without modification.

  • OS: Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista (currently only the 32-bit versions are supported)
  • Memory: at least 128 MB (192 MB or more is recommended)
    Note that you should have enough memory left for Windows (at least 128 MB for Windows 2000 / XP / 2003; at least 512 MB for Windows Vista)!
  • Hard disk space: 2.5 GB (XFCE version) / 4.5 GB (KDE version)
    Note that you need an NTFS file system (which is default since Windows 2000) because you can't create files larger than 2 GB on FAT(32) file systems!
  • A good internet connection (to be able to install further applications via apt-get / Synaptic)
  • Some basic Linux skills to proceed once andLinux is installedWhat you will get
You will get:
  • a fully functional Linux system, however without the usual desktop (you've already got one from Windows)
  • a second panel (e.g. at the top of your Windows desktop) or a second start menu (in the system tray next to the clock), from which you can start Linux applications
  • Linux applications and Windows applications can be used simultaneously and you can cut and paste text between them
  • apt / Synaptic to install further applications
You will NOT get:
  • another desktop
  • the bench of applications that usually ship with Linux distributions (you have to fetch whatever you want)
  • a printer driver
  • trouble with further drivers ;-)
