Ubuntu is one of the most popular versions or type of Linux OS because it has a similar GUI to Windows and is not so oriented to command line. Changing the operating system overnight from Mac or Windows to ubuntu is not easy, so maybe you want to try it first. Also, some programs from Ubuntu will not have versions for Windows. The solution is Wubi.
Windows and Ubuntu are incompatible computer parameters which must be dealt with independently in default operating systems. Wubi is a tool to help the two to work closely when managing the partitions of the computer system.
The software comes as an executable file with prompt installation with minimal effort. It gives a chance for Windows to effectively work on the Ubuntu platform with minimal interruptions.
This application can be run by both novices and experts in computer operations thanks to the user-friendly interface with no complex procedures during installation and execution of the functions.
You are at liberty to choose the desktop environment to work on after installation. Once you click on the setup file, you just key in the username and password, then, of course, the desktop platform and you are good to go.
A click of the install button prompts the software to execute the files as you also view all files and their respective location. All the installation files add the reboot files to the registry for future reference when you choose the specific OS.
Although the software is simple to use compared to CD installation, at times the installation fails the standard reboot procedure. All in all, it is the best tool to use when you want to have multiple Operating systems on your computer.
Wubi is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in boot manager/disk category and is available to all software users as a free download.
