Linux invades Windows
A lot of Windows users haven't tried running Linux, because it seems to difficult or intimidating. Ubuntu now provides the opportunity of installing Ubuntu from within Windows.

The installation works just like any other Windows program installation and it even sets up a boot menu so that users can choose between Windows and Ubuntu when the computer starts.
