Interested in Linux, but hesitant to start playing around with drive
partitions, boot loaders, and other folderol which can leave you with
a completely useless PC? Wubi does one simple thing: It creates a
Linux partition within your Windows partition. You specify how much
you wish to slice off--from 5 gigabytes to 30--and it installs Linux
there. The next time you boot, you are given the choice of booting
into Linux or Windows. If you choose the former, Ubuntu Linux will
launch and will then format the reserved space for its own needs. One
more reboot, and you have two operating systems on your computer. The
only way it could be easier would be if Wubi downloaded the knowledge
of how to use EMACS into your brain.
