Perhaps you ever read or noticed about this thing, Wubi, elsewhere on the Net. By using Wubi, we can install Ubuntu from a Windows system. Pretty cool, isn’t it? No need to make a new partition, no worry about messing up your existing system and the best thing is, it’s free! You can find more information about this installer on its official website. Just click on the first link provided above.
Still confused how to do that in real? Just check out this tutorial, prepared and written by people from HowtoForge.Com.
Of course, you can find similar things and also think this is a ‘crap’. But my intention is to put the emphasis on how easy we install an alternative operating system, in this case Linux, on our Windows system.
