Sometime back i wrote about installing Google OS Chrome in Windows 7 . This time i will be giving a tutorial on installing Ubuntu 9.04 inside Windows 7. The method is quite similar to installing Google Chrome OS. Get a free Ubuntu Distro before you start the process. Please follow the step by step procedure given below.
Step 1 . Install Sun Virtual Box in your PC.
Step 2 . We name the new OS as Ubuntu
Step 3 . Allocate RAM for the virtual box . More RAM means better performance. Ubuntu requires least of your computers resources . 384 MB of ram is just sufficient to run ubuntu.
Step 4 . Create a new virtual boot disk and select Ubuntu from your CD Rom.
Step 5 . Once loaded , you are ready to start. Just click on the green arrow in the top of the screen and Chromium is ready to launch.
Step 6 . This is the Ubuntu Startup Screen .
Features : Ubuntu comes with pre-installed Firefox Browser. You can surf web pages smoothly from inside Ubuntu. This is how Onetrickaday.com looks from inside Ubuntu.
Conclusion : In my personal opinion , i dont think there is a downside to Ubuntu , being the fact that it is free and ships at your place without any cost. With more and more vendor support for hardware and software , this lightweight OS will give a good challenge to Windows for systems used for basic things like word , spreadsheet , basic photo editing etc.
