If you see fewer posts. . .

it's because I don't post much anymore. This may change at any time. But PLEASE feel free to look through our Flickr stream (over on the right), which is updated almost every day.

WUBI Ubuntu Linux Installer

This is for my brother Erik.

If you have a slow Windows PC and want to try Ubuntu Linux to see if it would be faster, download a small application that will automate the process of installing Ubuntu Linux on an existing Windows PC.

Once downloaded, you simply start the program and fill in the options. People without brand new computers will probably want to select the Xubuntu desktop environment, which is for slightly older hardware.

The installer will bring down the Ubuntu installation files from the Internet and take care of install and setup. Takes about half an hour. If you don't like it, you simply boot into Windows again and run Wubi again and click uninstall. Done.
