    Yes, it is possible.

    CGWYN or something like that allows you to have a sort of Linux bash shell on your desktop. Other than that, there should be a few more options. But why not just download a distro and try it out?

    If your worried about having to install, just go to and look at the SuSE live eval CD. It runs off the CD and you don't need to install anything. Just stick the CD in your CD drive and reboot.

    Or, KNOPPIX is also on there. Alot of people love it. Try those out.
