    I tried the built in wubi installer, and it failed at virtually the
    first hurdle - the fake hard file was created fine, the machine
    rebooted as it should, but one of the first (if not the first)
    dialogue boxes wanted to know what I wanted to import from an existing
    (correctly identified) user ID / windows user.

    The option was to select what you wanted to port across, or just hit
    forward to continue, but no matter what I did the option was ghosted
    out.

    FFS, I have no intention of buying osnews media, for they have lost it.
    Really, Linux moves forward, at times it is not at it best, rather like an
    artist's/groups CDs. But it keeps moving on. A few glitches every so often
    is a small price to pay.

    BTW osnews.com grab the code and help them fix it.

    Not only that, but there is still a month until release. The last
    month, traditionally, is when the polish is actually applied.
