I already know I'm a nerd, so I'll take that as a compliment. Thank you.

As for Ubuntu running *in* Windows, it's just a hoax that has been around since Breezy. There are wiki pages, forum posts, mailing list topics and irc conversations about it. If someone pulls it off, great. Until then, it's just a hoax. Always has been, always will be.
