Why I don't have Windows installed

I found my old blog post here and thought I'd post this as a reply to myself.

I don't understand this thing people say, that Linux has to get easier to install before people will adopt it. I installed Arch Linux the other day, it doesn't even have an installer anymore, it's just a readme file with chroot instructions.

A new version of EXTON Linux MultibootCD 6-OS is ready. Changes: New (latest) versions of Slax, Puppy Linux, 4MLinux, Tiny Core and SliTaz. I have replaced Parted Magic with GParted.
