If you mean 'Linux for Windows 2000'(as in 2nd line) then there is
no(will never be) such thing. And if you actually mean 'Linux on
Windows 2000' then this might help, http://www.vmware.com.

Personal computing didn't spread as much because of Windows as because of the cheaply available PCs and the easy availablity of compatible hardware components. And that's because PC became an open standard in Hardware.
If you still think otherwise, Mac came up with a GUI and mouse much earlier than MS. Mac users still swear by the ease of use that Mac OS offers. Why then aren't we all using Macs?
AFA the business model of GPL is considered, well, just concentrate on what Trevor is saying - promotion of Open Software in Schools/Colleges. What are you taught in Schools/Colleges? Basic fundamentals like Algorithms, PLs etc. Do we really need VC++ to teach somebody to program in C++? Of course not. People learn DBMS starting with Oracle / MS SQL. At UG level, they hardly go beyond SQL 92 Statements. That they can as easily do in PostgreSQL too.
And please don't base your arguments on the de facto standard that MS Office has become in Office Apps. Office Apps aren't the end of the world. The user ignorance has reached to such levels that people don't even look at Notepad. They'll use MS Word even for 1-pagers they never intend to print. Isn't HTML good enough for on-screen formatting?
When it comes to businesses, just tell me how much money does a company make out of selling mass-market apps? As compared to the custom solutions, this percentage is not too much. And no body stops you from building proprietary solutions on top of Free Software.
I can deliver my customer a web application built using PostgreSQL/PHP/Apache and retain all Property rights without violating GPL. That's because my application *uses* free software. It's not *comprised* of it. This is a difference many people fail to understand or choose to ignore while arguing against GPLed software.
Schools being the foundation builders that they are should definitely use Free Software so that they can provide better Computer Labs and powerful software without blowing through the school budget or tying the students down to some proprietary software they'd be reluctant to move out of.

Yahoo! Greetings - Send FREE e-cards for every occasion!
I'm looking for a [gui] mail client that (doesn't suck):
1) Allows me to use any smtp server (with authorization)
2) Supports pop3 at least. imap4 is optional
3) Works in ``offline mode''. That is, when I'm offline, it
should queue the mails and only attempt to contact the smtp
server when I go online (as in outlook). Should not depend
on /usr/lib/sendmail in any way.
4) Supports mail filtering and sorting, pref. with the help of
procmail. i.e. it should use procmail if I ask it to.
5) Stores mail in mbox format.
6) Supports search through messages by regex.
7) Let's me use Vim as editor for composing mails.
I can add more to the list, but this much will do. Pine doesn't
have 1 (auth), 2, 3, 4, 6. Mutt, AFAIK, doesn't have 1, 4.
Most GUI clients don't have 6 and 7. Outlook doesn't have 5, 6,
7 (and 4, if you don't like the message rules in outlook).
I've been living with sendmail+fetchmail+procmail+pine+vim all
this while but I want something easier now. I want to get rid
of sendmail in that equation. I'd like something like Outlook
plus a portable file format, regex searches, procmail-like
rules, and the ``Let Me Use VIM'' feature.
The only difference between a car salesman and a computer
salesman is that the car salesman knows he's lying.
Does anyone have info. on how to have real time/almost
realtime mail backup system with linux and sendmail 8.9
the main server and backup server are geographically
