Use Ubuntu Inside Windows
Have you been curious about Linux and Ubuntu but never tried it yet? Have you got one hard disk and one OS (Windows) and you do not want to mess up with your data, files and OS but still want to try Ubuntu? O’ Com’n, we both know you want to try Ubuntu, because you have heard about it a lot. Here is a safe chance for you to try Ubuntu. Install it, use it and uninstall it, just like any other software in Windows. Wubi is an officially supported Ubuntu installer for Windows users that can bring you to the Linux world with a single click using Windows OS. Wubi allows you to install and uninstall Ubuntu as any other Windows application, in a simple and safe way.
Wubi is Simple. No need to burn a CD. Just run the installer, enter a password for the new account, and click “Install”, go grab a coffee, and when you are back, Ubuntu will be ready for you.
Wubi is Safe. You keep Windows as it is, Wubi only adds an extra option to boot into Ubuntu. Wubi does not require you to modify the partitions of your PC, or to use a different bootloader, and does not install special drivers. It works just like any other application. Wubi is free of spyware and malware, and being open source, anyone can verify that.
Wubi is Discrete. Wubi keeps most of the files in one folder, and if you do not like it, you can simply uninstall it as any other application.
Wubi is Free. Wubi and Ubuntu cost absolutely nothing (free as in beer), but yet provide a state of the art, fully functional, operating system that does not require any activation and does not impose any restriction on its use (free as in freedom).
