How do you remove Linux without removing windows?

Insert your Windows CD or DVD and get to the part where it shows all your partitions and delete the Linux partitions. If you are unsure which one is your windows partition just make sure you don't delete or format any partition that is in the NTFS, or in the rare case a FAT32 format, as those would be your windows partitions.

How do you install Linux in windows 8?

Have a look at WUBI (search Google) to install Ubuntu as a file, without making any changes to your Windows 8 hard-drive. To remove WUBI, simply use Windows utility to uninstall programs. Or, create a separate partition on the Windows hard-drive and install Linux (or which ever distro you wish to use) on to the new partition. Remember to first backup important files onto an external storage device. Or, download and burn a Linux distribution with an ISO extension onto a CD and use as a Live Disk. If you then intend to install Linux, you will be given the choice to either install as a dual-boot with Windows by installing Linux alongside Windows, or wiping Windows and letting Linux use all the hard-drive.


Is Maplestory compatible with obuntu?

No, it's only possible to play MapleStory on any distro of Linux with a Virtual Machine. It's also quite a hassle. I'd recommend dual booting into Windows/Linux so you can play games without trouble and also enjoy the benefits of linux.


How do you install ubuntu on windows based computer?

A quick and relatively easy method of getting Ubuntu Linux - if you already have a Windows system and you want to run Ubuntu Linux on it - is to download Ubuntu and install it by using the Wubi (the Windows-based Ubuntu Installer) from this Ubuntu web site: http://wubi-installer.org You can use the Wubi (Windows-based Ubuntu Installer) to download and install Ubuntu Linux in Windows and this is very similar to installing any software program in Windows. One of the great benefits of using the "Wubi Installer" is that you can also uninstall Ubuntu Linux from Windows if you need to (in the same way as you uninstall any Windows program). When you use the "Wubi Installer", you DON'T have to do the following steps (that you would "typically" need to do) to install the Desktop version of Ubuntu Linux on an existing Windows system: download a Linux ISO file burn the Linux ISO file to a Linux CD set up your computer to boot from CD boot with the Linux CD to run Linux "Live" and get to the GNOME desktop double-click on the "Install" icon to start the installation routine run the Ubuntu Linux installation routine Ubuntu Linux Training Tips: The Wubi Installer is only used to install the Desktop (not Server) Edition of Ubuntu Linux on an existing Windows system - and not on a new or used computer system that doesn't have Windows already installed on it. All of the "download, burn, setup, and so on" steps listed above will be described shortly in upcoming sections. The Ubuntu Linux installation steps described above are required to install the Desktop and Server Editions (versions) of Ubuntu Linux - either on a computer system that has Windows (to create a Dual-Boot Windows / Linux system) or one that doesn't have Windows Ubuntu Linux Training Tips: Keep in mind that prior to installing Ubuntu Linux (or any Linux distro) on an existing Windows system, you need to do a complete backup of your Windows system - twice! Also make sure that you can use the backups that you have created to restore your Windows system from backup.

Can you run Microsoft applications on Linux?

Yes and no. Linux will not run Windows applications by itself, however, there are ample tools written for Linux that permit you to run Windows applications on Linux. The open-source WINE software will run a majority of Windows software on Linux. You can even configure Linux to automatically recognize Windows applications and use WINE to run them. Alternatively, there's a wide variety of virtual machine products that permit you to run the Windows operating system as an application under Linux, and, in turn, any Windows applications inside the Windows virtual environment. Finally, some "Windows applications" are written in .Net or Java and can be run directly under Linux using mono and java respectively (albeit, some .Net applications will not yet run under mono).


What are the hardware differences between Windows and Linux?

The only differences hardware-wise between Windows and Linux are CPU architechtures. Windows use x86 CPU architechture and Linux can run on any architechture it is compiled for (from source code). Usually, you will find Linux precompiled for mainstream CPU architechtures (ie. - x86, Sparc, ARM, etc..)


What type of Linux is best for PC games?

All Linux distros have about the same capabilities as far as applications go. The key to playing any Windows games on Linux is the installation of Wine. Wine is a library that allows most (though certainly not all) Windows programs to be run on Linux.


How do you modify Linux to meet the standards of Windows?

They are two completely different platforms. You can get close to in appearance of any Windows release given you have the appropriate fonts and themes, but it will never work the same way as if you did in a native Windows installation. Conversely, if you dress up Windows to look like certain Linux desktops, it will never reach the full functionality of Linux.


Is there a way to build a Windows 7 ready computer that would be cheaper than a Linux ready machine?

No. Any machine that is capable of running Windows 7 is equally capable of running Linux; thus virtually every computer is "Linux ready." Depending on your specific needs, Linux can be run on far less powerful and cheaper hardware than Windows 7 can.


Can you run Windows or Linux on a Mac?

If you can dual-boot, sure. Otherwise, you'd have to use Windows 8 and above or any Linux distribution that supports UEFI firmware. If not, there's always virtual machines.


What exactly is linux?

"Linux is a computer operating system, like Windows." "Linux is an OS, but the code for it is open source, meaning it is available to anyone and can be manipulated by any user."


What is the relationship between Microsoft and Linux?

Microsoft and Linux have no direct relationship. Microsoft has frequently attacked the reliability and cost effectiveness of Linux in order to promote their own Windows Server products. They do not release any software for Linux directly, but have made several "deals" with various commercial Linux vendors, such as Novell, Xandros, and Linspire, to license Windows media codecs.


How can you run a Super Nintendo emulator on a PlayStation 3 without Linux?

You cannot that I know of. For one thing, the ps3 operating system is not an open operating system that allows its user to install random software like windows or linux does. For another thing, running software made for windows (or any x86 system, which is what most game emulators are programmed for) requires an x86 emulator to run on the cell processor of the PS3. So you would need to use an x86 emulator (like qemu) on linux and from there run the gaming emulator. I believe there are some super nintendo emulators that will run on linux on the PS3 without qemu, for example, snes9x. But no, you cannot simply run an emulator from the ps3 without linux. The Ps3 operating system will not run executable files like windows does.


What does webcam and sound support for various hardware under linux look like compared to windows?

Linux has broad support for numerous sound cards and web cams. Relatively few are unsupported. In addition, some devices that were not originally intended to be used with either system, such as the PlayStation Eye, were supported on Linux first. When compared to any single version of Windows, Linux as a whole has far better device support, because Windows often drops support for legacy technologies, and if a manufacturer stops supporting a device, there won't be any drivers for newer versions of Windows. In contrast, the Linux kernel seldom discontinues support for any device and thus they can be used for as long as there is a way to interface them with your computer. If you have a PCI sound card from 1998, say a Creative Live! SoundBlaster 5.1, you can use the device just fine in Linux, but not in Windows Vista or Windows 7.


Do you need windows 7 to download minecraft?

If you mean os, no you can download it on Windows, Mac, and Linux even (if anyone uses linux...) and if you mean web browser I think you may use any but might need java.


Could Windows have more users than Linux?

That depends on whether you are asking whether more people use Windows or Linux or which system supports more users. The maximum number of users in a modern Linux system is 4,294,967,295. Windows doesn't have any specific limit that has been published, but each account takes up a significant amount of space, limiting the number to well below the limit in Linux. As to how many people use them, more people use Windows on their personal computers than Linux.


What is a daemon in Linux?

A daemon is the equivalent of a "service" in Windows. It is a program that runs in the background and performs tasks without any need for interaction, such as a web server or a program to automatically sync to the correct time.


Is MEPIS Linux compatible with Windows?

MEPIS, or any other Linux distribution, is not directly compatible with Windows. Most files, like documents, movies, and music, can be used and enjoyed on MEPIS. MEPIS cannot natively support Windows programs. Wine, an application layer, can be used to run about 70% of Windows programs. MEPIS is not compatible with Windows drivers, though it has a program known as "ndiswrapper" to make a wireless card work with a Windows driver if Linux doesn't have one.
