Wubi is a kind of installer of the Ubuntu Linux operating system, as well as Kubutnu and Xubuntu, designed to run in Windows. It can be used to install Ubuntu as a regular application. There is no need to repartition the hard disk - during the installation process on a normal Windows partition a new folder is created where all files are placed.

After installation, an additional entry will appear in the standard boot menu allowing you to choose whether to boot Windows or Ubuntu. With the help of Wubi, almost any Windows user can get a full operating system based on Linux and not be afraid to lose their data or do something wrong at all. Besides, Wubi allows you to install and uninstall Ubuntu as an ordinary Windows program.

A warning.

The Wubi program is essentially a web installer - it does NOT contain an operating system. After it is launched, Ubuntu will be automatically downloaded from the Internet (note - it is about 700 MB of Internet traffic) and installed. Besides, if you already have a disk with the Ubuntu operating system or its image, Wubi will be able to connect it and use it in its work - and, of course, you won't have to download the OS from the network anymore.

Wubi is a Windows-based software that allows a user to have access to installing Ubuntu without partitioning the hard drive. This gives those new to Linux the opportunity to test-drive it via a stand-alone installation, known as an hard disk image, without fear of lost, formatted, or overwritten data. Should the user wish to discontinue use of the Linux system, Wubi also allows for a clean uninstall which does not affect any of the Windows-based programs or protocols.

Wubi allows you to run ubuntu or linux on your PC, however Wubi differs from most due to the fact it allows you to run them with out the need to partition your harddrive . Now almost anyone and their mum can run linux on their PC without having to be a computer wizard

Wubi is a program meant for installing ubuntu on windows using a single file in an existing windows partition. It added an ubuntu option on the boot menu allowing the user to choose between linux and windows without needing to repartition the disk. While it did a great job at simplifying the choice of systems for the users it did have some limitations such as a lack of the ability to hibernate and was more susceptible to damge during a hard reboot. All in all though it is a very good program making things simpler for the user

The Wubi software was easy to install and the license was free which is always a good thing. it requires a login to use which is a good security measure. however, sometimes it is hard to get it to do what you need it to do. i would give it three out of five stars.

Wubi for Windows allows you to use the desktop system and creates the root disk file. This Wubi for Windows software runs smooth, quick, and stays updated. This software product also creates a swap file for the Windows system. It is important to test this software once it is installed to test any flaws. So far I have not had any issues with Wubi for Windows and it is very fast. The desktop environment is great to use with this Windows software.
