In terms of migration plan, we currently advertise Wubi on
website [1] leading to [2].

I would propose to recommend people to use dual-boot install (but that
two at the moment is not flawless with windows 8).

But if users still want the "don't change my computer experience"
maybe we should start recommending for those users to try ubuntu in a
Virtual Machine instead?
