Two Ways to Dual-Boot Ubuntu and Windows

There are two ways to dual-boot between Ubuntu and Windows. The first is the normal method of installing Windows first, and then Ubuntu, on separate hard drive partitions. The second is to install Windows, and then install Ubuntu using Wubi — no additional partition necessary. I need to give some thought to the pros and cons of each, since I just inherited a used Intel machine to use for a home server.

Happy husband. Proud father. Systems engineering consultant, and former U.S. Air Force officer. A music fan, science fiction nut, geek, and die-hard Mac user who grudgingly deals with Windows at work only because his employer and clients aren’t enlightened enough to move to Mac OS X.
