does the latest version of the installer work exactly? I am somewhat confused 

Please see the other post for how it works. Feel free to ask if you need more 

Some front-end related projects: 

* Find a reliable way to map windows drives to linux devices
* Make wubi code distro-neutral and easy to rebrand
* Improve detection of relevant windows settings (detect screen 
readers/accessibility options, improve timezone detection, current screen 
* Improve downloader. The current metadl library already supports download 
resume, metalinks and partial checksums. But the mirror selector is too basic 
(random choice). The library is being rewritten in c++ to add segmented 
downloads. Hampus Wessman is working on it, but he could probably do with some 
* Improve skin (ExperienceUI?)
* Code clean-up / refactoring 
* Change interface language at runtime
* Change branding at runtime
