[scribus] When is a new release for Windows coming out?

Wubi is better than a Virtual Machine, in that it is running natively on the box you are using, and not in an environment, like a VM/VB.  I have used it here and there, and I love it... The only thing I wish it did was to allow me to switch between the two OSes without having to reboot.

I believe you are talking about Wubi: "Wubi is an officially
supported Ubuntu installer for Windows users that can bring you to
the Linux world with a single click. Wubi allows you to install and
uninstall Ubuntu as any other Windows application, in a simple and
safe way. Are you curious about Linux and Ubuntu? Trying them out
has never been easier!"

I don't use Ubuntu and have never tried Wubi, but it sounds to me
like a virtual machine that can be started outside of the operating
system on which it lives.
