Functionality and components

The program provides programmers with a simple way to use applications that were originally developed for Linux OS. It consists of a DLL whose purpose is to provide POSIX API functionality and a collection of utilities that are able to accommodate the Unix look and feel on Windows computers. Unfortunately, like in the PowerShell, all actions are done via the command-line.

The components include such tools as syslogd, inetd, crond and several other daemons that can be deployed as services. Thus making it possible for the operating system to behave in a Linux manner.

Installation process

Deployment of this program requires user participation, as well as working Internet connection for downloading files from dedicated servers. It is necessary to pay attention to the package selection during the setup. The more components you choose, the longer installation will take.
