Question UNIX emulators

I now that there are emulators like WINE and NetTerm, and even Hummingbird is a good on as well, but are there any emulators for Windows to emulate UNIX??? I am looking to brush up on my UNIX skills, but I cannot afford to by a small UNIX workstation right now. Anyone got any suggestions...besides download Linux? I know it's similar but I would like to emulate HP-UX if I can or Solaris.


Thanks,
MIRV

well, here is a good one:
cygwin (search google)

it is not so much an emulator, but actually a posix unix layer between the win32 kernel. but many software that runs on linux is available to run on cygwin.

i never tried to find a free emulation....but...
i am using vmware_4.0.0..... it creats a whole virutell computer for you and you could use each x86 based OS..... but it costs about 200 EURO (think its nearly the same in DOLLAR)

you can't afford unix?

wtf bro, there are like 5 *nixes out there that are free
Red Hat
Fedora
Slackware
Solaris ( i believe, haven't got to use it yet)

but the point is, you could just simply dual boot with linux and xp it works perfect, i've never had a problem.

I'm guessing the OP wants to use both at the same time. Hence, either buying a separate computer for unix or finding a unix emulator to run on windows. When you create a dual boot, you can only use one or the other at a time...

Yes... first, download Solaris ( a real Unix(tm) S.O. ) from, here http://wwws.sun.com/software/solaris...s/get.html#x86 and then follow this link http://www.jan.exss.de/vmware/solaris/en_index.html , it will tell you how to install Solaris on VMWare ( it's not certified by VMware, but you can always try )...

Good luck !
