Run Windows apps on your Linux OS

Just read a fascinating article in InfoWorld about a Manila based startup company who are developing software (called David) that, it claims, will allow virtually any Windows application to run on the Linux operating system!

The company, called SpecdOps Labs, has been showing proof-of-concept demonstrations to potential industry partners recently, and last month it enticed TurboLinux Inc. to sign a letter of intent with SpecdOps indicating its interest in discussing a distribution deal for the product.

A major barrier achieving acceptance and rollout of Linux to the desktop is the lack of Office support – David could overcome that Goliath in a single stroke.
