If you love Linux, but need Windows for specific applications, you may have faced the dilemma of a dual boot system or running Linux on a virtual machine. Both approaches have a negative approach: inconvenience and memory usage respectively. In this guide, you’ll learn about Portable Ubuntu Remix — Linux that runs as an application in Windows — and where to download it.

The concept is fairly simple, but the work behind this software is genius. Simply download Portable Ubuntu Remix, run the extraction, and put the system files in a permanent location (I.E. C:\Linux)

After extracting the files to a stable folder, double click on run_portable_ubuntu.bat to start up Linux.

You’ll have to wait 30 seconds or more depending on your system capabilities, while the operating system loads.

Now you have access to Ubuntu’s program menu. All the standard applications that come with Ubuntu are bundled with this package.

Yes, each program runs as a windowed program — right within your Windows installation!
