Wubi from Ubuntu is good in theory. In that you can install Linux onto a part of Windows just like any other software, then remove in within Windows add/remove applications.
It creates a dual boot set up using GRUB, which does show up on my machine but then results in a blue screen and reboot when I select Windows XP. So now I’m stuck with Ubuntu, which actually works from the dual boot… surprise… surprise…
Luckily Ubuntu can now read NTFS drives, so at least I can still access any documents I have in Windows.
So a bit of a thumbs down there, because no doubt I’m going to have to reinstall Windows XP from scratch. Something I’m not looking forward to on this new ASUS Eee PC.
For the time being I’m going to sit back and use Ubuntu – test what can be done, in particular video editing and think about what I’m going to do when it comes to upgrading… Ubuntu or Windows 7? At least Ubuntu won’t lock out my BIOS chip when that time comes…?
