    I think it depends which version you download. "Wubi", which I've 
never used, is a windows version that installs into a windows 
filesystem. I believe that it's bootable.

    I'm using Xubuntu at present (Ubuntu with XFCE desktop), as with the 
standard Ubuntu it can be installed to its own filesystem and booted. I 
don't have windows on this system except as a virtual box which I run as 
an application within Ubuntu. However if you don't need/want windows you 
can get rid of it completely.

    What's the url for your download?

See ya
