Hey guys, I used Wubi, and have Ubuntu working flawlessly. ITS SO BEAUTIFUL...so customizable it's ridiculous. Windows 7 is still awesome, but Ubuntu 10.04 is just...incredible. I can't believe I even bothered installing Mac SL, lol...

Thank you so much Arc, and also you guys too DaRonRon and fseal.

im a little curious about wubi. How does it install ubuntu without touching the bootloader? Does it run in Windows like a virtual machine would? And does this mean no GRUB?

edit: i just read the FAQ so ignore this post.

But are there any possible drawback from doing this?
