Lina, or Linux in Windows
« on: October 03, 2007, 01:42:45 PM »
Copying from Lina main page:

Quote
LINA | Open Source Everywhere

With LINA, applications written for Linux run with native look and feel on Windows, Mac OS X and UNIX operating systems. LINA is a thin virtual layer that enables developers to write and compile code using ordinary Linux tools, then run that code on a variety of operating systems. For users, LINA runs invisibly in the background, enabling them to install and run these Linux applications as if they were native to that users' operating system.

I thought this might interest the people who want to make their game multiplatform without installing Linux (Yeah, not installing Linux is a bad choice, but still... :P).

Having said that, I don't think Linux is really that hard to use, but to each his own ;).
On the wings of the storm.

On a related note: ADOM Sage (the best way of playing ADOM, IMO) works by playing the Linux version of ADOM under Windows. But I don't know if the method is open.
