Have you ever heard of multibooting many distros from the same partition (eg, MultiBoot USB with Grub2)?

Do you need to find a way to install the new Ubuntu 10.04x LTS into an existing partition as another option to multiboot?

Announcement: ATTENTION ALL BLOG COMMENTERS: Malicious commands

So I was in the Shops at Mission Viejo today ready to pick up my mother (she has a job at Macy's there) this evening. Okay. My father and sister were trying to kill time by looking in the mall and I had no choice but to go with them. Fine.

So, I've been using Haiku, the free re-implementation and continuance of BeOS R5. From the first time I heard about it I was intrigued, and once I got a look at how dedicated Haiku developers are I knew I'd be giving this OS a try. Not being a developer myself, all I could say about how the project progresses would come directly from the mailing lists. For that reason, I've decided to make an end-user blog instead.

This post is only to inform anybody who's interested as to what...
