Linux on Windows!

so I was looking for an ssh server for WindowsXP on my laptop (P4 3 GHz; 512mb RAM; XP Pro SP2) and I ran across the cygwin suite (http://www.cygwin.com/) It is a basic environment to run certain linux applications; of course, they all need to be re-compiled for the cygwin environment, but it can run X and all of the popular server software (apache, openSSH, proftp, etc) NTFS "access rights" are not the same as linux native FS permissions, so there will be some serious problems with that implementation. (private keys come to mind)


i opt for a client only implementation for any windows box, and server software galore on linux or mac! lol
