it is beta so I am not sure myself, but it looks a very nice way to get Joe Average to try dual boot with linux, alse I like the idea of choice of distros even though it seems to be the 'buntu bunch, thanks

Right now very few distros can give 'buntu a run for its money in the free desktop distro arena. There are a few but many are offshoots of the big brown beast and then there are the usual suspects (Fedora, openSuse, Mandrake) and those based off of them (PCLOS, and others).

If they ever allow me to compile my ISO I'm gonna give it a go (too many users on right now)

Custom NimbleX is currently on a crash and burn test with the girlfriend behind the wheel (she knows nothing of Linux) if she can use it anyone can.
