    Oh god. I don't know discobblmarktml well enough to know how to fix the code blocks.

    Fixed.

    • Ensure each code fence (triple backtick) has a blank line before it, and
    • Ensure nothing else is on that line.

    Could you possibly fix this with DLL injection?

    It will.

    You just need to sandwich Linux between them, s'all.

    Via DLL injection?

  • Well duh, who are you, that guy who thought he could run things without Windows? You know, Microsoft didn't spend tens of millions of dollars...

    Are you saying that this
    linux can run on a computer without windows underneath it, at all ? As
    in, without a boot disk, without any drivers, and without any services ?

    That sounds preposterous to me.

    If
    it were true (and I doubt it), then companies would be selling
    computers without a windows. This clearly is not happening, so there
    must be some error in your calculations. I hope you realise that
    windows is more than just Office ? Its a whole system that runs the
    computer from start to finish, and that is a very difficult thing to
    acheive. A lot of people dont realise this.

    Microsoft just spent
    $9 billion and many years to create Vista, so it does not sound
    reasonable that some new alternative could just snap into existence
    overnight like that. It would take billions of dollars and a massive
    effort to achieve. IBM tried, and spent a huge amount of money
    developing OS/2 but could never keep up with Windows. Apple tried to
    create their own system for years, but finally gave up recently and
    moved to Intel and Microsoft.

    Its just not possible that a
    freeware like the Linux could be extended to the point where it runs
    the entire computer fron start to finish, without using some of the
    more critical parts of windows. Not possible.

    I think you need to re-examine your assumptions.
