Re: Win4Lin

Hi All,

Does anyone have any experience with win4lin?  I'm thinking about
running FC 6 on my new laptop with win4lin for the applications I need
to have in a Windows environment.  I've use VMWare Workstation/Server
before, but I like that win4lin stores my documents/scripts in the
Linux environment and not on a virtual workstation.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

I haven't tried Win4Lin either, but regarding your VMWare issue
of file being stored on the VM, I have it so that the "My Documents"
on the VM for my user is mapped to
"//REALMACHINE/USERNAME/My Documents", and on REALMACHINE, I share
my USERNAME home directory (Samba autoshares).  This is done with the
"Move My Documents" operation on Windows XP in the VM.  No noticeable
performance issues for normal everyday operations.
