    A Linux working like Windoz Someone is Kidding. Follow skyfolly's suggestions and then choose your distro. But you must know that none of a linux distro can be a Windows, if it is then it s not a real Linux distro

    They probably mean 'Lindows' which is still Linux.

    Never use Lindows. i think it is not a Linux distro... If you want Linux just use a real one.
