"Presto is free to try. A full license will cost you $19.95 USD. The system will nag you to purchase a license each time you start it up. If you don’t activate your copy within 7 days, then the OS will automatically shut down after 10 minutes of use.

"You can download the Presto Windows installer from CNET, or there is a torrent available if you choose. I downloaded the torrent – which was really more of a trickle. Once you have the 463 MB .exe file you can install it from Windows with the usual procedure. I’d estimate that it took about 5 minutes to install on my MSI Wind. After it’s done, just reboot and select Presto from the Windows boot menu. (My machine was already dual booting XP and Ubuntu Jaunty. I selected Windows from the GRUB menu and then was presented with the Windows boot menu to select Presto.)"
