Boot Lindows from a CD

[COLOR=royalblue]The firm said it allows you to boot Lindows OS 4.0 from a CD drive by a simple restart. The cut down OS includes hardware detection, plug and play, multimedia support and real video.[/COLOR]

Although the Linux based OS got some bad press at the beginning (haven't tried it myself yet - review link), I believe they're making a great job offering a linux alternative to the average user with a more complete suite of software, or in this case, a CD you can boot anytime.
Lindows is including the disc for free with the full version of the OS, or you can buy it separately for $30.
