Is an Installer which will allow you to install Ubuntu in Windows & it's probably one of the best programs ever written.

I've been using a Windows / Linux dual boot since the beginning of 2006. Setting up such a system can be a pretty tedious process, what with defragging, partitioning & having to use chkdsk. Removing one of the OSes but keeping the other intact is even more hard work & involves using a program called MbrFix.

I'd been using XP & Mandriva Linux but decided to go back to using a Vista & Ubuntu system. But this time I decided to use Wubi to install Ubuntu & it was much easier than the previous installation method. In fact it was as easy as installing any other program in Windows.

I first heard about Wakoopa on the BBC programme, Click. It featured a website called Wakoopa which tracks all the software you've got installed on your computer. I created an account there & you can see the programs I use the most in the widget below.

Xbox 360 Hard Drive Guide

There is an excellent list here which shows you what games can be installed to hard drive on the Xbox 360 & what games can't. It also tells you what the effect of installing the game is, in the case of The Last Remnant it's essential & improves the games playability drastically but in the case of Halo 3 it increases the loading times by 10 seconds.

In the past I've used Pidgin as my IM Client in both Windows & Linux but I've just started using Digsby.

It's available for Windows, Linux & Mac plus it isn't just an IM Client, it also allows you to check your E-Mail & Social Networking accounts.

A word of caution though, if you're installing the Windows version the installer will try & install a lot of unnecessary garbage on your computer like Registry Cleaners & so on. You are given the option to decline the installation of such programs & I recommend you do.

Eric Python IDE

Interesting thread here on the Ubuntu forum about different IDEs for Python. I'd never heard of Eric before so I thought I'd install it in Windows. Building & Installation was successful but I recommend looking at the list of prerequisites before trying yourself, to minimize any possible errors.
