- Porting (colinux) is much faster then virtualizers (like vmware) and
this is the biggest advantage.
- colinux is Free Software, the mature one virtualizers (vmware,
virtualbox) are not really Free Software, just some parts are
- I did check out AndLinux. It`s really great, the integration with the
host os is much better, the speed is great, the look and feel is great,
copy and paste works, sounds works, easy installer, no slow virtual cards.

The idea is great but this project won`t get accept by Free Software
developers since lina uses software patents.
It`s also a little bit limited compared to colinux. Colinux could let
run also proprietary linux native only software on windows.

Ok, I begin to understand this a little big better. Colinux is like
linux, it`s the base. But colinux is not ubuntu a preconfigured distro
wich runs out of the box, this must be picked up by interested third
party developers like AndLinux who want to use colinux as base.
