You're being constructive, not picky, so thanks for the feedback.

With Ubuntu and Kubuntu you can still boot the live CD if you want to, to get a look at what you are thinking of installing. Your point was valid, I just wanted to make it clear that these distros include that option.

I agree that dual boot is the way many people will go unless they are just trying to make use of an old PC, or, as in my case, simply get fed up of trying to achieve decent performance from a PC that is supposed to be 'Vista Ready.'

From an evaluation point of view, the aim is to look at a number of distros and, if possible, find one or more that, as you correctly point out, just work. If the consensus is that the products should be evaluated as live CDs and also as dual boot with say XP, I am happy to do that but the process will simply take longer. Throw Vista into the equation and the whole thing becomes even more complex and time consuming.

I'm open to suggestions.
