Just chiming in to add my encouragement to a 64bit colinux effort. Like others, I have moved to 64bit Windows and won't look back now (8GB RAM is the minimum for my development workstation). I am running Linux VMs with VirtualBox and coordinating with Vagrant, both of which are great products. But I really miss the speed and simplicity of colinux. A version that works on 64bit Windows would certainly find a place in my development workflow.

Regards,

John Scott

Hi Paolo!

That's great news.

The ReactOS project has a 64bit driver signing license and they are
willing to sign drivers for other open source projects:

   ReactOS Driver Signing
   http://reactos.org/wiki/Driver_Signing

Without this, the cost for this license would be about $500 per year.

Hope this helps!
