comment When i open wubi.exe for installing edubuntu it again downloads the edubuntu-13.10-dvd-i386 .iso file.Why does this happen?
@user68186 I disagree. Running it from a pendrive is a great way to test if things work. Installing it properly is great if you want to go all-in, including replacing the Microsoft boot loader with the Linux flavor. But the strength of Wubi is to retain the Microsoft boot loader and system, and put Linux in second rank.

comment Sharing drives/folders in a family - but in different households?
Thank you - this would mirror all shared data on all the machines, but I only want to access it, not copy everything to local. I should have explicitly stated "We want to share some folders directly between each other, with full read/write access."

@muru thanks for the dupe candidate, however I find that it doesn't cover it because there is a lot more still missing. I updated my question.
