That's fine of course - but it's hard for those of us who try to answer
questions to know if the question is because the user knows what they're
choosing. I can easily imagine a novice user thinking Ubuntu was a
program they can install in windows from their USB stick.

It would be good if people thought about that when they write questions
- readers don't know the writers background.

Great that one can install off USB - something I must try next time.
