andLinux – Try Linux directly under WindowsAuthor: rberthou
It is in this point of viewthat I tried “andLinux” which is a Ubuntu complete distribution which directly works under Windows.
After a quick visit of the official site of these attractive product, I choosed to test the KDE version and I downloaded the 665MB (a minimal version XFCE 163MB is also avaible).
Warning : During the installation I had no questions about the disk place and a “base.drv” disk of 4Go had been created. So you have to plan some free place.
I was very surprised of the quick start up and of the fluidity of the applications (Kwrite, Konsole, Konkeror), everything seemed to work perfectly (“apt-get install”, disk share with Windows, Cut/passed in Windows and Linux applications, …).
After 48 hours of test I waan’t any probems ( with andLinux or impact on my Windows’s configuration). So I am very satisfied of this product.
