I've used the Wubi versions of Ubuntu and Xubuntu (the run within Windows option). It's like having dualboot without having to partition your drive.
Once installed ... At boot up you can choose Windows or Ubuntu (or whichever buntu you've chosen).
If you want to uninstall Ubuntu having used Wubi just boot in to Windows and go to Add/Remove programs and it's as easy as that.
Wubi standa for Windows Ubuntu Installer.
I am now running Linux Mint using their version of Wubi which they call Mint4Win. Downloaded current ISO for Mint, burned to CD-R. Boot into Windows, insert disc, click on Menu when disc shows on My Computer and choose Install within Windows.
I found that Mint found my wireless (Dell laptop) with no problem. Same with my Mobile Broadband dongle. In other words I'm very impressed.
