This would be neat and I've looked into it before. From the Virtual
FUDCon, I've taken that a user needing a windows installer is not in our
target audience (at least not right now.) With regards to making it an
"unofficial" installer to prove it's viability, I'm all for it. Fedora
sponsored/official live images were sparked by community initiative, a
'from windows' installer might be an example in the future. I don't
particularly like the way Wubi gets things done, but give the concept
merit. I'd look at helping to do something similar, but using anaconda
to do the install among other changes.
