When I install Ubuntu with wubi - is it the same if I simply install it? Like disk formatting, etc? Because I need ubuntu for mongodb and need to be sure it will be work as fast as normal one.

My understanding is that it is a bit slower for IO.

What performance differences are there when installing with Wubi?

...but to the best of my knowledge, wubi won't work with anything after 12.04.
