I'm sure that many of you already know this, but the Ubuntu Live CDs
also have a bit of Windows software on them. Obviously not as much
as this, but it can still be useful.

Step 1: pop in the CD and see a couple of apps.
Step 2: boot in to the live CD and have a look around
Step 3: hit that install button, and don't look back.

If only it was so easy.
