Many embedded developers using Windows hosts are running colinux.
This gives them a real Linux develeopment environment concurrent with
windows without all the complexities of hardware virtualization.
coLinux is Linux running as a process under windows. Because it is
not a hardware virtualizations scheme, coLinux does not have direct
access to the hosts hardware - instead using
custom services on the host, and custom linux drivers to access
resources like the net. This sounds more complex than it is.
On the other hand coLinux is REAL Linux, you can cross compile, do
development, ... And you can easly migrate information from coLinux to
If you are so inclined you can even run an X server like Xming on
Windows and connect to coLinux and have a GUI.
For most development I either run Linux on my desktop, or connect to
one of the man Linux vservers I have on a Linux box on a old machine I
keep in the basement - just for that purpose.
However, I use coLinux constantly when I am on the road.
I like coLinux so much I am trying to borrow some of its ideas and
develop a collection of Linux/Windows drivers, that allow my Linux
hardware that is hosted in Windows PC's
to access the Disk/Net/... or the Windows host using coLinux like
