    for everyone that is new to linux and whats to try it here is a program that lets you run windows along side with linux on the same computer. i have never set it up my self it is very complicated. it is free and open source to have fun with it

    you may want to clarify that it isnt actual linux it is just somewhat of a linux shell command set. all of the apps tghat install with your cyginstall are actually ported and compiled win32 apps.
    it is sort of hard to download and install if you arent on highspeed connection.

    for more flavor of the real thing i would recommend getting DSL or knoppix
    from www.distrowatch.com
    they are bootable cd's that actually are the real thing and are for those who dont want to dl and install anything.

    yes i agree with you t4thfavor. but the bootable cds i lose, but are great for using them on public comptuers or hotspot hacking with a laptop like phack (professional hackers assault kit)

    the only reason i installed cygwin was to get an ssh server on my box as opposed to telnet, it was s nightmare

    all i have to show for it is 2 system services that dont do anything at all and a cyg install that i cant get to go away. i
    lesson: if you want remote management securely through the console you have to use linux...

    also did i mention that i use aol ( the most unreliable isp ever on the face of the planet ever) and i cant even access myself when im using it.. im convinced that aol doesnt use ip's it uses precognition to spam you with whatever it is you are teying to find.
    and then it guesses the account # to your checking account and all of your credit cards and mails it to some tax fraud attourney in france. and that is what i think

    hey look at me im a nut now!!!

    what can i say, i aim to please.

    also since after the 12th refresh of this page jagboy's pic actually loaded it looks as if he may have had better luck with cygwin than myself. but diversity of opinion and results is what is great about this forum.
