Yeah, I don't feel we need to vote about this. I did suggest Howard would  
post about it since I remember someone having opposing opinions about it.

We have been getting numerous questions about wubi and the lack of Ubuntu  
Studio support. Seems like many people want it.

I don't have a good idea about what the downsides of Wubi would be. If  
there are any, it would be great to hear them.
Also, we might need to test this. So, perhaps we just implement it, and  
then decide later if it was a good idea or not?
