WHAT is Winmodem

WHAT is Winmodem

These few days working on Linux modem and been struggling in installing the driver. Winmodem and Linmodem are a new term which I see frequently during my searching process. I was curious about these and did a search from the Internet. This is what I got.

"A Winmodem is a software modem designed to work with the Microsoft Windows
operating system. A traditional modem uses hardware to perform its tasks, but
Winmodems perform their key tasks with software. This makes them smaller and
cheaper to produce, but it also means they cannot be easily used on other
operating systems because the driver support requires far more effort to
produce." -

Another resource which talks more on this is available from this link.
