For people who always wanted to try out Linux but never had the time or the energy (or the courage to risk moving to a Linux only environment), here is a great application that allows you to keep Linux as well as Windows for double -booting environment. You need 256 MB of RAM and a 5 GB hard disk and you are good to go. It is a single-click download and install to try out Ubuntu Linux and it preserves your Windows, too.

If you wanted to try out R with Linux, then it is an easy way out for you (and me).

Saves quite a lot of money per desktop per OS and per office productivity software.

Sounds good to be true – well, the site is
