Hmm Windows... what a nasty word...anyway... Joomla is a nice piece of kit,
its dead simple to install ubuntu, you just have to stick it in the drive
and watch it load... Then just hit the install button on the desktop. The
beauty of ubuntu is the fact that you hardly ever have to touch the command
line, most of it is point and click :)
