hardy heron

Ubuntu Linux 8.04 ( hardy heron ) makes it very easy for Linux newbies to gets hands on Linux without those nightmares of formatting and hardware troubleshooting.

Installing Ubuntu 8.04 is actually easier than Windows, it took me only about 30 minutes to get it installed and running.

Wubi, a free open source tool, enables users to download and install Ubuntu in one hit, directly from Windows. No more burning a downloaded ISO image to CD. No more booting from the CD to install Ubuntu. No more disk partitioning decisions. No more Grub boot manager.

It comes pre-installed with compiz fusion and Nvidia Graphics driver can easily be installed by typing " sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-new "  in terminal.
