    Hi guys,

    Is there any way to simulate unix commands on top of windows 7 64 bit ?
    Please let me know if somebody has an idea.
    I have a bit hands-on with the basic commands. But want to pick up shell scripting now.
    So, i am looking for an option to practice at home.

    Regards,
    Vikram

    I would suggest you install virtual box + xubuntu.

    But if your ram is too low < 1GB then go for cygwin.

    Hi Kekerode,
    Tried installing Cygwin. But that thing would'nt start downloading. So frustrating... :-(
