Getting Better Results With WUBI

Nov 25, 2008, 14:34 (0 Talkback[s])

"Well, while there are so many great things that WUBI offers, there is one drawback that can make eyebrows rise. WUBI downloads the latest "iso" image from the web automatically when you run it. There is nothing wrong with that and infact this is what makes WUBI a very very easy tool to use. Then what really is wrong with WUBI?

"The problem is, WUBI does not seem to choose the fastest mirror near your location. And this makes the download take very long time. I installed Ubuntu in my machine using WUBI and it took nearly 12 hours to download the "iso" image (Kindly note that the size of the iso image is around 700 MB). And even worse, when I tried installing Ubuntu via WUBI in my wife's notebook, it took nearly 18 hours and downloaded only 38% before I got frustrated and stopped WUBI."
