"Linux on Windows refers to running the Linux open source operating system or native Linux applications on Windows computers.

"There are two general options for running Linux on Windows. One option is running Linux in a virtualized environment, while a second option is to run a version of the Linux kernel that has been ported to run on Windows. An example of the latter is andLinux, which uses the Cooperative Linux (coLinux) port of the Linux kernel to enable andLinux to freely run on Windows."
