Robolinux

Last Update: 2017-01-18 12:48 UTC


Robolinux is a user-friendly and intuitive operating system based on the latest stable release of Debian GNU/Linux. One of the project's more interesting features is the availability of a pre-configured virtual machine support pack with Windows XP or Windows 7 - a VirtualBox setup which allows the user to install and run the Windows operating system seamlessly alongside Robolinux. This is an optional add-on that must be purchased from the project's online store.

It works, the problem is you have to pay for the VM which means it's not free. Better Linux system that do the same job.
