Not long ago some grub updates screwed wubi installations up. I
considered this to be ultra bad news because the people I had been
recommending to use wubi were novices with no ambition for being more
I stopped suggesting wubi at that time. Unfortunately although wubi is
brilliant at what it does, when it does get messed up, it needs more
experience than *I* have got to unscramble it.
I have not heard yet that the updates debacle is well sorted, nor why
it was allowed to happen anyway. It would be good if it was resolved
in a way I could continue to be confident about it.
I believe its developers do not recommend it for long term use, and
anyway it is vulnerable to damage if power loss occurs.
