to download ubuntu8colinux.rar file.
Cooperative Linux is the first working free and open source method for optimally running Linux on Microsoft Windows natively.
More generally, Cooperative Linux (short-named coLinux) is a port of the Linux kernel
that allows it to run cooperatively alongside another operating system on a single machine. For instance,
it allows one to freely run Linux on Windows 2000/XP,
without using a commercial PC virtualization software such as VMware,
in a way which is much more optimal than using any general purpose PC virtualization software.
