Robolinux Cinnamon is a distribution (hand-packed version of Linux) designed to help Windows users transition from Windows to Linux smoothly, using a Windows-like desktop environment.

A new old world

Robolinux's unique calling card for Windows compatibility is a special piece of software called Stealth VM that lets the user run many different versions of Windows within Robolinux, as if the operating system were a Windows computer itself, without the load-heavy desktop environment that most virtual machines have. It works very well for most things, though its 3D support is more limited. On the LInux front, it's based on Debian, and supports some very intuitive package managers.

Robotic computer, heartfelt design

At the end of the day, Robolinux is still a distribution of Linux, and any current Windows user who wants to use it full-time as their day-to-day operating system has some learning to do. But if they do, they'll find they can take their Windows favourites with them, and it handles itself very well with Linux software, as well. Gamers may want to keep a dedicated Windows partition, but past that, Robolinux is uniquely flexible.
