| Introduction
| Lubi, the Linux-based Ubuntu Installer, is a graphical user interface and 
| backend that allows installation of Ubuntu Linux-based distros on a 
| loopmounted filesystem (no partitioning required) on modern GNU/Linux 
| distributions, without an installation CD. Lubi functions similarly to Wubi, 
| however, Lubi uses GNU/Linux as the host system instead of Windows.    


New project.


[Installing Linux from Windows] Wubi Review

,----[ Quote ]
| In conclusion, this tool is certainly one of the easiest ways of letting 
| people try Ubuntu without removing Windows or having to partition their hard 
| drive for a dual-boot.  I have enjoyed this tool, and although it is still in 
| beta, it works very well and is very stable.  So, if you are running a 
| computer with Windows and want to give Ubuntu a try, then this is the 
| solution for you.
