Yes, of course U can use WIndows and Linux on a same PC. For that u need to install boot loader which ask u for Operating System choice Option. Most of the time boot loader automatically gets installed when u install Linux on a windows machine. I have personal experience of running these two OS's simulteniously

bye Happy computing

instead of windows you can have linux or mac. they are different, but you will know whats best for you when you try them, linux is free to download.but you need an operating system (windows, mac, linux or any other OS) for the computer to work


Yes. There is a Linux port of Virtualbox and it runs Windows as well as any version of VB.


Yes, antivirus is needed for any operating system. It's needed for any Windows operating system - not Linux. Not because Linux is bulletproof, but because viruses are written for pervasive operating systems like 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.


Without knowing what you mean by "converters", it is impossible to answer the question. Do you mean "emulators?" ABI compatibility layers? Converters from one file type to another? Linux installers?


Yes. Linux was originally written for computers capable of running Windows, and any PC with a 386 or higher processor is capable of running some form of Linux.


Let me answer any other questions related to this. It works on a PC, or Mac, no linux, Windows 7, windows vista, any other crap, it works, if its on a linux it doesnt



"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."



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.


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..)


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.


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).


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.


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.

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.


Anything Linux is more secure than Windows of anyversion.Security holes get patched much faster, are of fewer number, the permissions system is consistent and reliable, there are only 30 in-the-wild viruses for Linux, and the source code is open for the world to see, allowing less bugs to go unfixed.And that's without getting into "advanced" Linux security features or options such as iptables, netfilter, SELinux, and ClamAV, which any home Linux user won't need to fuss with at all.


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.


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.


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.


with Linux you can run in almost any machine, but you need a minimal requirements and knowledge about the machine a example people cant run Linux in some cell phone has the power to run Linux but can´t because it is hard to get the information about the processor


A service Pack is just a load of updates to any software (Windows or Linux) for computers.


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.


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.
