    first post and a weird idea


    i was just outside griping cause i have to dual boot to use my system (xp for games, mandrake 10 for everything else) and i started thinking, if windows can boot multiple kernels on the same system at the same time (NT Loader) and linux can as well, whats stopping them from being able to co-op boot?

    two different OS kernels on the same machine at the same time using the same resources?

    I don't know much about the Windows kernel, but I just wanted to point out that you have a rockin' user name.

    Isn't that a VM (virtual machine) ?

    no, vm is acualy a separate layer above the kernel, i think hes refering to 2 side by side kernels working in tandem.
