Windows Software not on Windows but Linux

SpecOps Labs claims that by installing its bridge software on a Linux machine it runs exactly like you have a Windows OS on your system only more reliable.

How does this compare to Lindows?

Is there going to be a lawsuit over this?

if you could run this on linux for PPC, that would be totally sweet. seriously. windows-only apps would require neither windows nor VPC (assuming it works well). hotness.

Guys.. If you dig deeply into the site you will find that they haven't even begun actual development. Definetly vapor-ware.. I think I'm gonna place my trust with Wine for now. And the better wine.. the better darwine.. when that project is finished.

If darwine is finished and works I am so going to lord it over my Windows friends. WMP9 yep got that, oh Exchange server, yep got that, oh BagelV, nope don't got that.

In the immortal words of Nelson:

Haha!









How come no one talks to me?

This article seems to contradict what i recently posted. It looks as if they have developed it and can already run office. Well.. If it's not ************ I hope they port it to Mac.. or make it open source so we can slap an x86 emulator on top and eventually convert the X11 code to Aqua.. As Darwine is doing with Wine.
