Install was quite easy and straight forward. It might have been nice to
have a little more contextual help the first time into aptitude as I
found it confusing until I got the hang of how to get around/what keys
did what.

I also had trouble setting up Grub as it was not clear what it was
telling me to do. It would be nice if it told you how to set up dual
boot. Instead I can only boot into Linux (which I will fix shortly).
