How to run a distro inside of windows? part 2

How to run a distro inside of windows?

This is very simple you have to download a exe file, yes you read well, called wubi this exe file will aloud you try Linux inside of windows. Well at this point you don't have much choice because this exe is only for Ubuntu, so what you have to do is download the correct exe file to match the Ubuntu ISO then put the two on same folder this method you have to switch off your Internet or if you not have any ISO download only wubi . Run wubi and we will download the ISO file needed for you, when we finish and if everything going well you will see on boot up two OS two choose and that is it very simple process. Now this is what i did, for me this worked very well but in your case maybe is different.
For older wubi versions see

From wubi web site:

Wubi is Simple

No need to burn a CD. Just run the installer, enter a password for the new account, and click "Install", go grab a coffee, and when you are back, Ubuntu will be ready for you.
Read wubi f.a.q.

Today many people still afraid of testing new things, like new software or even new OS, they are afraid of destroy their computer but with a live cd [A complete OS that can be boot and running entirely from cd] will aloud you to test any distro [OS] without destroy or pc because everything is loaded to the memory, so no changes to your pc. When you finish explore the new OS you will get everything like you never boot a live cd, let me tell you, from a live cd you never will catch a nasty virus or spywaer. Well even with a real install of many distros to choose, nun or little of this nasty, so more secure than windows. The question is, are you still afraid of testing a new OS?
If the answer is yes, then you can try from inside windows,and this i will talk on my next post...

Seek for one good distro.

All,started when i read one magazine about and all free software, i got curious so i start read more about and trying some this free software on Windows, like pidgin Internet messenger but better than msn because we can handle different accounts [msn,google,yahoo,etc] gimp like adobe photoshop the difference its free.Then i decided is time to try a distro that came on a magazine Fedora, i burn this to a CD but back then i even didn't know the difference of files like ISO image, i follow the magazine steeps but nothing,you know on windows you must have software to burn ISO on Linux you only need click on the ISO image to be burned. Than i learned you can use a live CD to try all OS and is software so i download OpenSuse this one give a few problems but i google it and found a solution,but in the end i got Ubuntu 8.04 lts.
