I cannot believe I am reading this… but Ubuntu 8.04 has made installation for Windows Users, so easy!!! Here’s the excerpt:

Let’s face it, deciding to nuke your existing operating system installation and replace it with a completely different OS isn’t the sort of task that you should approach lightly.  One of the barriers to Linux adoption is the fact that many people find the idea of wiping their Windows installation a daunting thing.  Sure, the widespread adoption of the Live CD with allows users to boot into a working Linux environment has made taking a Linux distro for a test drive easier, but a Live CD experience falls far short of what you can expect from an installed Linux experience.

Ubuntu 8.04 “Hardy Heron” beta has made Linux adoption much easier by making it easy for Windows users to install Ubuntu onto their PCs without affecting their Windows installation.

Two new features added to Ubuntu 8.04 are umenu and Wubi and these additions have significantly lowered the first rung onto the Linux ladder by making it a snap to install Ubuntu 8.04 onto a Windows system.  All you need is:

  • A Windows PC
  • At least 4GB of free space
  • Ubuntu 8.04 on CD or an ISO mounted in Windows

Check it out. Ubuntu 8.04 “Hardy Heron” beta – making life easier for Windows users

Now there’s no more excuse for Windows users to try this out!!! One installation hurdle crossed… one major win for Ubuntu!
