I have to say, I don't like the idea. One of the main wubi tasks is to
show to the user that he can leave the world of windows. And normally, you
are leaving using doors, not windows. The picture of the window makes me
feel that I am somewhere where I can't leave the room, even if there is
beautiful landscape outside.
So exactly the oposite of that what wubi should actually do.
