Bug Description

On a computer with only Windows 7, Ubiquity does show the alongside option, but does not state which part of the disk space will be used by Ubuntu and which part is the original space. Is Ubuntu on the left or on the right side of the slider?

So you don't know what moving the slider will do: will it increase or decrease space for Ubuntu?

A solution might be, that the space to be used by Ubuntu (on the right side of the slider, I presume), shows the text "Ubuntu 12.10".
