Cygwin will come with bash, which can run your script, and openssh can be installed under Cygwin, and will allow you to login to the Windows machine remotely.

If you squint, VM security looks a lot like LAN host security. It's just another machine on the network, with the same sort of attendant risks. If you would willingly put a Windows 7 host on the LAN, you shouldn't be especially worried about putting a Windows 7 VM on the VM host. It is possible to lock a VM down to the point where it is less dangerous to ...

They measure the sizes differently by default. Under Linux, you can specify the --si parameter (which uses powers of 1000 not 1024) with df and du to get numbers that match up with how Windows calculates the sizes. Compare $ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 119G 29G 89G 25% / versus $ df --si Filesystem ...

Microsoft Powershell has matured a great deal since it was introduced with Vista, and it can do most if not all of the things you'd expect a shell script to do for you on your Windows ...

I have been able to run a virtual machine in VMware using the original installed partitions, but only with Linux as the client (Windows host) and not the other way around. The problem is that the virtual machine is significantly different from the real machine, and Windows is much less capable of coping with that than Linux is (Android is probably more like ...

This is supported by the ath9k kernel driver, which should be included with any stock linux kernel. the wireless card drivers appear to have been corrupted or deleted You have ...
