How about Lindows 3.0 ?

Anybody has installed this OS ?

Is its Linux environment compatible to RedHat Linux 7.* or 8.*?
(***> Will those EDA tools supported RedHat 7.* be able to
work on this OS ?)

Thanks in advance :eek:

The Lindows is based on the linux kernel (SUSE) and uses the Wine to run the Windows application in the Linux environment. It cost $99 to download. You could download a Redhat 8.0 for free, why bother to pay Lindows $99 unless you really need Windows-Office runing in the Linux.
