I am wondering why so many people loading Ubuntu MUST also have
Windows XT or Vista? I should think that if they are not sure they will
like Ubuntu then load Ubuntu in it's own partition and have Grub boot to
it when you want to. All this pain and waste of time on VM seems to
generate many messages on how to get VM working.
Of course my computer has zero Windows and this is because nothing
on windows do I want. It sure makes it cleaner and easy.
