Recently one of my friend demonstrated the New Ubuntu (8) Installation feature for Windoz people, who wants to switch to GNU/Linux,
as most people scared of installing GNU/Linux on there Win Box as a dual boot.
The Ubuntu installer was started from Windoz env, and after 1st reboot it took the normal installation procedure.
But there is no grub, windoz manage it.
Still I didn't upgraded my F8 box with F9, so not sure F9 also available the same feature.
