"There is a new gimmick for the Linux world... installing the Linux file system into a Directory of a Dos or now a fat32 file system."

"In the area of setup. WinLinux2000 wins hands down. Any Windows user that knows what kind of hardware will definitely prefer the WinLinux2000 install to the Armed Linux method. WinLinux2000 uses Install shield to try and grab the hardware settings from windows. So if your hardware is supported by linux chances are that WinLinux2000 will get it right the first time."

"Which Linux would I put on my moms computer? WinLinux2000. Why? Because it seems that they put more effort and thought into making it easy for a windows user to setup. If you mess up the settings the first time all you have to do is go back into windows and run a configure utility."
