Could we remove the 'This article is a stub' ?

Thanks Xinit. I used simultaneously as a rewrite so as not to infringe on copyrights. Jondel 01:20, 28 Apr 2004 (UTC)~~

Capitalization on Japanese Names[edit]

Just FYI. There is a custom in for the Chinese and Japanese to write their last names in all caps ins English so as to distinguish more clearly which is the last name; as it is not too distinguishible in the Western world.

This may be a Chinese/Japanese custom, but I don't believe it's a Wikipedia one. If you have examples of this use within Wikipedia, please show me. Remember that links in Wikipedia are case sensitive after the first letter, so we would need to have the display name different from the link name. If you feel strongly, by all means change it back, I'm not going to press the point further. --Gadfium 03:35, 30 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Grammar nitpicking[edit]

Under the "Comparisons" heading, the following sentence leaves me wondering whether "solutions" are distinct from "methods," and how else Xen might be considered "other": "Cooperative Linux is significantly different from traditional virtualization solutions such as VMware, plex86, Virtual PC, and other methods such as Xen, which generally work by running the guest OS in a less privileged mode than that of the host kernel." Is Xen not traditional? Not virtualizing? --D021317c 17:49, 5 May 2006 (EDT)

Nomachine and FreeNX[edit]

Given that cooperative linux does not yet support a Linux X server I have found that the easiest thig to do is to run FreeNX server under co-operative Linux and the Nomachine client (actually an X server) under Windows. You then create a Microsoft loopback interface ( a dummy LAN port ) for the X apllications on colinux to talk to the Nomachine client on Windows over the loopback port. dieselnutjob

BSD[edit]

Is anyone working on a BSD kernel that can run as a Windows application just like coLinux? dieselnutjob

Dan Aloni[edit]

The article on Dan Aloni has been proposed to be deleted. Since authors of this article probably know more about him that most, perhaps you can contribute on the Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dan Aloni. —mako 03:17, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Package management[edit]

Does coLinux manages packages in the Debian way (*.deb, apt-get...) or in the Red Hat way (*.rpm ..). Can one download or install coLinux with Debian inside ?.--Mac (talk) 18:16, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

coLinux is really a Virtual Machine, similar to VMWare or Xen -- it is not an operating system. A package manager is part of the operating system. There are several coLinux projects which run Ubuntu, such as andLinux[1] & Ulteo Virtual Desktop [2]. I believe that there are some other projects using Fedora, Slackware, etc. Within 'andLinux', I can use all of the regular Ubuntu tools, such as 'apt-get install traceroute'. -=Gigglesworth (talk) 22:17, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Bogus images should be removed[edit]

Since certain images have had their Windows background removed, they no longer show what they purport to show. I think they should be removed. Yworo (talk) 18:25, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

If they are bogus, why not upload non-bogus images? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.240.106.202 (talk) 18:43, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Feel free, as long as the proper license is used. If the images are non-free, make sure they are low-res. Yworo (talk) 18:45, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Me? No no, sorry, but I don't bother to contribute to a place that lets anyone vandalize content... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.240.106.202 (talk) 19:42, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Whatever. Yworo (talk) 19:59, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

I agree that the "screenshots" are confusing. I run Linux only so don't have the ability to take screenshots of CoLinux in action. But I think it would help the reader of the article if they could see what it actually looks likes to use and run it. Cinemageddon (talk) 06:20, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

contradiction[edit]

The sections "Overview" states first, that both systems are twins. Then it tells you, that this is actually impossible and hence one is the father of the other. I'd call this a contradiction. --Boobarkee (talk) 14:31, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
