WHY NOT HAVE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS?

For all those who talk of a war between Windows and Linux, there are others—like yourself—who ask, "Can't we all just work together?" As Windows & Linux Integration demonstrates, it's possible, and a lot easier than you think.

It doesn't matter whether you know Windows better than Linux or vice versa. This book shows you how to make the most of Linux in a Windows environment, and the most of Windows in a Linux environment. Written by two industry-recognized experts, one from the Windows world, one from the Linux world, they will guide you with practical, hands-on instruction and detailed examples that show you how to get the job done.

Coverage includes:

  • Welcoming Linux clients and servers into an existing Windows Active Directory
  • Integrating Windows clients into existing Linux directory services
  • Making Windows printers available to Linux clients—and vice versa
  • Integrating and unifying email services for Linux and Windows clients
  • Using Linux as a spam- and virus-killing machine to reduce Exchange's workload
  • Running Windows applications on Linux with VMware, WINE, Bochs, coLinux, and CrossOver Office
  • Using open-source porting projects to run Linux applications in Window
  • Integrating Linux DNS with Active Director
  • Creating web applications that work flawlessly on Linux and Windows clients
  • Setting up a universal locator service for finding files on Windows and Linux machines
  • Creating cross-platform, multi-user terminal servers using Windows and Linux servers for Linux and Windows clients
  • Remotely controlling Windows machines from Linux machines—and vice-versa
