How can I emulate Linux on Windows XP?

My PC has both operating systems, but sometimes I only need to do a small stuff on linux while running windows, and I have to restart with linux, and when done restart again with windows.
So I was wondering if I can possibly start my Mandriva Linux in a window while running windows without the need to restart?
What the best program to do that?

Open Source Android Drivers?

I just got an HTC Inspire and I wanted to compile the vanilla (unedited) version of Android from Google and put it on my phone. I already went through the process of downloading the Android 2.3 source code onto my computer (running Ubuntu).

Does the vanilla version of Android comes with open source drivers like other linux based operating systems?
I’m not asking about the drivers for Windows.

I’m wanting to know if Android comes with open source drivers for its hardware (touchscreen, etc)?

ill start off by saying im not bias towards any of the competing operating systems i use all three windows linux and mac on a regualar basis. and i personally think that microsofts claims agist its competitors are the most inacurate pile of crap i ever heard. its almost as if microsoft’s only tactic is to convince everybody that everybody sux but them. so far every claim made by microsoft aginst its competitors i can proove to be false. i have nuthing aginst windows but this b.s. makes me want to leave windows and use linux or mac. i dont like companies that have to spread lies about ather companies just for its own sucsess. i dont dislike windows but im starting to get a bad taste for microsoft. mac takes shots at microsoft too. but they always show you evedince of their claims. and let you make your own conclution for the most part. linux is a diffrent animal yes. windows comparison to linux was ubuntu. if you never set up ubuntu the right way the the codec packs and updated distro packs then yes its true what they say. its like microsoft is making claims over sumthing they have no idea how to use themselves. these are just my opinions. im curious if anybody feels this way or if im just crazy.

can anyone define it for me kindly ?
thanks :)
Windows vista – closed source
Mac OS X – closed source

I need a free partitioning software to partition a part of my hard drive in FAT32 while the other part is NTFS. Any ideas? How do I switch between two different operating systems?

In your opinion, what is the best Linux OS?

Preferably no "light/lite" versions. Fully-functional Operating Systems that would be good to take over as a computer’s main os?

The Debian Linux install (5) is telling me that my computer is "capable of running modern, 64-bit operating systems". It recommends that I download a 64-bit version of Debian. However, I know my processor is x86 based. Should I just use the installer I’m using now, or should I download the amd64 version of Debian?

I just received my new external hard-drive from Dell, and I just partitioned it so that I could put an emergency backup operating system on it to retrieve files from my computer that I haven’t backed up yet.

Can an external hard-drive boot operating systems such as Linux, Solaris, or LynxOS RTOS?

Just curious…

By the way, where can I get a copy of the OpenDarwin OS?

Desktop Linux Applications?

Can desktop linux operating systems like GNOME run microsoft software easily? Is it a hassle to do so? I’m getting a Dell computer for university this fall and I dont wanna use Vista but I still wanna use microsoft office among other things.

Microsoft has 95% of the desktop market, but many versions of Linux are capable and competitive operating systems. Yet, Linux hasn’t caught on with most desktop users. So, with that in mind, why hasn’t Linux caught on, and what can be done to help make Linux more widely accepted among ordinary desktop users?

Is it possible to install suse Linux 10.1 while i have windows and keep both operating systems on my PC? or the Linux will delete windows?
Is there an installation options in Linux 10.1 to keep both?

I am looking to know if anyone has ever, in the past 20 years or so, written an operating system designed to be used in the home market, and tried to compete with apple and microsoft. I am not talking about linux, i am looking at operating systems desigend to produce profit.
Thanks

I want to learn how operating systems are developed. I have tried open source linux, but I don't like it. Please tell me where to get a small os that is easy and small so that I can understand it. Thank you very much!

It doesn't need to have a lot of functions, I need it in C/C++.

An answer that works gets the 10 points.
