Re: [PLUG] Ubuntu Hardy and Wubi on Windows

correct me if I'm wrong, but when I was reading about this, I got the 
impression that linux got installed *inside* windows.  I avoided this 
intentionally because Windows is only going to become unstable and 
probably will fail at some point, taking linux with it.

Best of luck, dear guinea pig :)

Windows has behaved decently for me lately but only the VM.  On Friday 
my Windows monitoring box developed a form of illness I refer to as 
Microsoftian Encephalitis.  This particular variety caused most of what 
the OS was supposed to do to fail by largely doing nothing (like 
Congress).  An in-place OS repair fixed this but my poor coworkers had 
to endure my Verbal Windows Fireworks<tm> until it worked again.

To add insult to injury, I had to find a fix because Win Updates 
completely, persistently and repeatedly failed to function.  Fortunately 
a teammate put together a bat file to fix this as the others had 
experienced it too.

P.S. I've had a few Hardy installations refuse to come up with video on 
reboot.  A re-reboot fixed this on each of them.
