Blah! That's install inside windows-option is one of the greatest things in Linux Mint and Ubuntu. Alongside their great usability,it's one of the most important reasons why I've been using these distros. I even installed a 5GB Linux Mint-subsystem in my old laptop using this option and it worked great. I didn't have to mess with the partition tables.
It's also really strange that this option is available in Ubuntu 8.10 but not in Mint 8 (?!). Linux Mint loses a lot of its famous versatility if this option is permanently deleted. It's not a good choice. Not at all.
It really sucks if this option will no longer be in future Linux Mint versions...
It means I have to go back to using Linux Mint 7.
Hey! Could all who want this feature back tell the developers that we highly recommend adding it to new Linux Mint versions. I'm gonna tell them I really want it back.
