Linux made easy

By brian - Posted on 09 May 2008

Installing the free operating system, Linux, is now a piece of cake for Windows users. Wubi is a Windows install of Linux, that literally takes a couple of clicks to install and little or no configuration!

"Wubi is an officially supported Ubuntu installer for Windows users that can bring you to the Linux world with a single click. Wubi allows you to install and uninstall Ubuntu as any other Windows application, in a simple and safe way. Are you curious about Linux and Ubuntu? Trying them out has never been easier!"

If you have a broadband connection and some free space on your hard drive (15 - 30GB) and want to try out Linux, download a copy of
Wubi, launch it, tell it how much space you want to give Linux on your hard drive, go have a cup of coffee and come back a while later to find an extra option to boot Linux when you restart your computer. More amazing work from the folks at Ubuntu!


I have not yet used Linux but have heard that it is more easy to use than Window XP
