I would like to try the Ubuntu OS with the Windows installer and to set up an apache server for testing. Will this work? Can I call "sudo tasksel install lamp-server" to have LAMP installed on a Ubuntu Desktop install (via Wubi), or it only works with Ubuntu Server install?

Thank you.

Yes, since Wubi has the same features as a regular Ubuntu installation, only somewhat slower. You can install Lamp on Ubuntu desktop.

But to do so

Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

sudo apt-get install tasksel

and then to install LAMP

sudo  tasksel
