    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    The name of that program would be Cygwin. There are a couple of others, too.. and M$ actually offers Unix Tools for Windows (check http://www.microsoft.com for more info on that).
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

    You can always try your hand with Topologilinux, but it's not the best product out there:

    I successfully got windowmaker to work on Cygwin. It is pretty cool.

    At my work some people use Virtual PC.

    Why not use removable HDs?

    I have 2.. one with Windows XP(tuned by me) and other with Slack 10.

    I use mostly Slack... because I'm sick of Windows suXP.
