The question says it all. I want to have Ubuntu 12.10 Gnome version. I can't find any Wubi version. Is this even possible?

Ubuntu 12.10 uses Gnome... if you mean the Gnome Remix, that's not an official derivative. – Uri Herrera Feb 22 '13 at 21:01

No, you would need to first intall Ubuntu with wubi and then install gnome-shell.

sudo apt-get install gnome-shell

There is a gnome remix. It is an unofficial version of Ubuntu that ships with gnome-shell, but I do not think they support wubi.

Just install with the Wubi then after the install run:

sudo apt-get install gnome-shell

There you go, Wubi with Gnome Shell.
