Robert Millan announced Debian Installer a win32 loader for Debian Linux. This project is inspired by Ubuntu's install.exe project.
With this project new Debian user are allowed to install Debian from within Windows operating system. No need to burn a CD or create a new partition (reparation) to install Debain.
According to announcement:
This has a few interesting applications:
=> Migrating to Debian on hardware without CD drive (or USB boot capability).
=> Migrating to Debian for users who have no idea how to burn an ISO and/or how to configure their BIOS for CD boot.
=> Migrating a system to Debian immediately, at any time, wether we have a boot CD at hand or not.
=> Advocating Debian to Windows users. Rather than give them a CD (expensive), give them a piece of paper with an URL.
