The windows installer

Last few days it has been a lot talking about the MS Windows based installer for Ubuntu. I totally love the idea. Most Windows users get confused about burning an ISO. With this we get rid of the burning step, instead we install our Ubuntu as any other MS Windows software.

I hope we can trick even more people to use Ubuntu when it is ready.

It's a neat way to install. If it does a real install I suspect it will also be a way to get a lot of people confused about where half their disk space went to when they decide they didn't like Ubuntu after all (hey, it doesn't even play mp3s out of the box!).

It needs an idiot-proof warning about partitioning.
