Ah, the famous conundrum "which Linux distro to install". The best thing would be to install the same distro the friends of your friend use, so he can get help when he needs. If he knows nobody using Linux around him, the simplest and user-friendlier distro is probably Ubuntu. It has a large user base and good support.

You can use X forwarding on Windows as well; all you need is an X server (such as Xming) and an SSH client (such as PuTTY). Xming includes documentation explaining how to go about things; basically, you enable X forwarding in PuTTY, start the X server on your Windows machine, SSH to the Linux machine and run your Java application. You might find that rather ...

In similar cases, I've used WinSCP. It's a Windows SCP client that allows you to browse the Linux file system graphically and scp files back and forth between the 2 machines. Available here : http://winscp.net/eng/index.php

I don't think this likely has anything to do with the mounting. Are you sure the CR characters are there originally in the file? Assuming they are not, you can use unix2dos to add them, though I haven't actually verified that exists for AIX. You could use sed like sed -i -e 's/\n/\r\n/g' <file> if you don't have unix2dos available. The -i flag ...

Windows line endings consist of the two-character sequence CR, LF. CR is the carriage return character, sometimes represented as \r, \015, ^M, etc. A Unix line ending is just the LF character. A way to convert Windows line endings to Unix line endings using only standard utilities present on all Unix variants is to use the tr utility. tr -d '\r' ...

Well, yes, this question gets asked a lot and people will recommend this or that distribution and they all have reasons to suggest a certain choice. What I'd say, though, is that you should probably consider it from another point of view. Ask yourself (or your friend) what exactly you are looking for. If that thing is maximum ease of use then you have a very ...

Linux Mint is another good choice. It's rank No.1 on http://distrowatch.com/. Personally, it's friendly with Windows users more than Ubuntu.

Shadowing files on a directory tree is what union mounts are all about. Linux offers several union filesystems; unfortunately, some are badly documented or unmaintained. For your use case, a FUSE-based solution that doesn't require privileges seems best. The most promising candidate would be unionfs-fuse. unionfs-fuse ...

I don't see in your post that you have tried creating a new partition in the available space - via Fedora's installer. You may want to try that.

The address 10.0.2.15 is a internal address for your VM which can not be reached from the Host OS because of the NAT mode. You need to change your network adapter to use bridged mode or host-only-adapter. In bridged mode the guest will try to get an address in the host network and using host-only-adapter you will create an interface on the host OS, ...

I see in my crystal ball that you're editing the file on a Windows machine. Windows and Linux have different ways of representing line breaks. On Linux (like any unix system), a line consists of a series of characters which ends with a line feed (LF = \n = Ctrl+J) character. On Windows, lines are separated by a two-character sequence: carriage return, then ...

If the program runs on PlayOnLinux well and you are satisfied with that, it will most probably be faster than in a VM. This would be my first preference. You can check applications' combatibility at WineHQ. Running windows programs in a Virtual Machine (like with VirtualBox or KVM or VMware) is quite convenient, especially for non 3D-games. However, ...

It doesn’t matter how you mounted the partition. Every byte of every file will be transferred. If your files do not have carriage returns after the transfer, then they didn’t have them before. I don’t know what command to run on AIX to check the encoding of your files, but you could just look at them in a binary editor and see if the lines are terminated ...

Ostinato aims to be "Wireshark in Reverse" and become complementary to Wireshark. Ostinato is an open-source, cross-platform network packet crafter/traffic generator and analyzer with a friendly GUI. Craft and send packets of several streams with different protocols at different rates.

I would highly recommend YUMI if you are making this on windows, its a subset of pendrive tho i found it far more straight forward and much easier to load multiple bootable isos onto link:http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/ also super easy to edit the grub menu if you are into that sort of thing.
