Hmmm is this the real McCoy...I think not

I hail from India....a predominant Windows bastion. As far as piracy rates go...we're only second only to our nemesis, namely Pakistan. Anyhow people out here use Windows like it's the only OS on the face of this earth. Multiple licensing did u say...duH! wheres the burner?? We create licenses as we please here.

The point I'm trying to make here is that people by and large are oblivious to Linux, Mac, FreeBSD et all. Everyone wants windows, much to my own disgust.

The concept of Lindows is a good step ahead...inspite of all it's shortcomings. I just hope that it supports Standard Windows Device drivers ...havent come across anything which verifies that. The moment someone tells me they've been getting 50 FPS in Unreal with a Ge-force2 in 800X600, you can consider me to be a Lindows convert.

Havent seen anything abt dual boot either...does it come with a boot manager like FIPS??
