Why was install in free space been removed!
Really had no idea where to put this, but I was installing ubuntu 10.10 the otherday and noticed the "install in free space" option was pointlessly removed. I know I can use manually partition but that makes unnecessary steps in the installation process.
One of the safest ways to install linux to dual boot with vista/7 is to use the vista/7 partition manager to shrink your partition to create free space (because if you do it from linux windows makes you chkdsk on next boot), then when you install ubuntu you could simply click "install in free space" and it always worked flawlessly. It was one of my favorite things about the ubuntu installer, and distros that don't have the option annoyed me.
Why remove the option? seems pointless to me There's more than enough space for it on the screen where it gives those options...
