Work at SourceForge, help us to make it a better place! We have an immediate need for a Support Technician in our San Francisco or Denver office.
This is a 10MB download that does what some scripts could already manage.
Please, see if your developer environment can squeeze this. (Perhaps as easy as moving the actual code into a native EXE-project?)
Where's the source by the way, I didn't find it in the CVS (or in any installed folder)?
(Can we actually know this EXE doesn't do all sorts of things?)
Also, I tried this on a Windows 98-machine and the result was some changing of files. Whishful thinking perhaps, but the statement in the Wiki is true: it does exactly (and only) what's detailed in the wiki-page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Installation/FromWindows
You can download the source from the files section:
The sources have been always published since the beginning of the project.
The reason why it is a 10MB EXE is that in that exe you have a linux kernel, drivers, and other boot files. All of them are gzipped before being included into the exe file. I am sure some tunning could be tried, so I encourage you to do it and your results could be included in next release.
Thanks for the feedback,
