    Interesting :-)

    I’ve one question to ask here. This installer is a real linux installation or it is just like virtual machine?

    100% Native Linux…no virtual anything. That’s what makes this interesting…you can run Linux from within Windows.

    I think it’s great for those that aren’t ready to jump into the deep end and would rather wade in the shallow if you know what I mean.

    Do you install Ubuntu as well? Indeed, In ubuntu live cd environment, you can uses gparted to cut out the ntfs partition, continue read mails and surf net while installation and the installation is fast.
