Through Andy Hunt’s Blog ( one of the Authors of The Pragmatic Programer) I got the Pocket Ubuntu guide for free.
Thanks Andy and thanks to Keir Thomas for making this available in the http://www.ubuntupocketguide.com
I just went through the first chapter and found out about Wubi ( possibly something I will try now as I like the idea of trying things quickly without having to reboot, installing… no i didnt read much yet).
Edit installed Wubi and its not a virtual machine of some sort as I originally though, however its a really easy installer for windows, I intalled it as a program then rebooted and there it was, dual booting without the headaches :D with a full ubuntu desktop, not what I thoough it was but real nice :)
So far the book looks good, more on it later on.
