Hello

to answer the original OP. Yes it is.

It's been possible for years using and special flavours of linux that are built around co-linux.

I used "portable ubuntu" flavour for a while. It booted ubuntu Linux right from the win32 desktop and worked just fine.

You can instantly flick between windows and  Linux and run both OS's at the same time...both doing
work

Solorin

it would be fantastic to see TCL with co-linux. I wonder how difficult it is to make
the file?

It would be just perfect for many people's computer usage. TCL bieng so small
you could just have it portable on a thumb drive, plug it into win32 and double click
and go!...

Some while back i asked on that thread if he had the compiled single .exe of tcl
colinux, but there was no reply.

as near as i can tell,
the instructions are all there,
o i don't know, i'd say
the only way to find out if they work
is to roll up one's sleeves and get in the ring.

do let us know if you find anything interesting ;)

p.s.  i believe co-linux is also virtualization.

hi

yes...it would be great to see it, not sure if the instructions would work though

Co Linux is real fast....basically native speed of the OS's is achieved for both OSs at the same time.
(it's not really like a VM) It's not really virtualization

Cooperative Linux is significantly different from full x86 virtualization, which generally work by running the guest OS in a less privileged mode than that of the host kernel, and having all resources delegated by the host kernel. In contrast, Cooperative Linux runs a specially modified Linux kernel that is Cooperative in that it takes responsibility for sharing resources with the NT kernel and not instigating race conditions.

This is what i found here...if you find it interesting.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooperative_Linux

i remember Portable ubuntu being real fast. Just same as a native boot.
