    You CAN compile, I got X working under cygwin, watched divx with mplayer... almost everything I tried, but don't remember how, it was 3 years ago If it doesn't fit your needs, try a vm... I tried vmware for linux (running a windows on linux, I mean) and it works fine, so it should work vice versa too.

    I think, that Cygwin is more convinient for everyday use, than linux kernel modifications, made to work as NT processes

    Apparently not as you've been given about 6 options so far. The magic of google my friend.

    Colinux is very stable and it might fit well to your requirements.

    Good morning!

    I'm very interested in this subject. I would like to run a virtual server on my windows machine. So that is:

    *A linux emulator*
    helping me to simulate LAMP. (Linux, Apache, MySQL & PHP)
    In Windows XP.

    I know that I can run Apache, MySQL & PHP within windows, but I want to see these programs working within an environment imitating a Linux server as close as possible within my limited funds.

    So - *free* if possible - *dirt cheap* if it's not!

    Best regards,
    Sonny
