    Wow thats actually quite impressive. Ran it straight off my laptop hard drive inside XP. Took about 30 seconds to load up and consumes around 150mb of ram. Programs load just as quick as they do on my native system which is great. Only possible bug i've found so far is with system update. It seems to freeze my system a bit while its loading and does a few strange things with the on screen graphics. It also reports no available updates so maybe its not fully functional yet. I guess i'll have to try manual updates instead.
    Another thing i just found out, don't try to run this if you have a virtual machine running at the same time, it could cause your system to crash, mine laptop bsods as soon as i try to launch ubuntu.
