App v/s install??

hi everyone

i had a quick question.

ubuntu 8.04 n other distros offer the option to install and run as an app
from inside windows,rather than as a separate OS.

I wanted to know,if there's any difference between the two and can i avail all of ubuntu's features etc. by installing the app?

That's Wubi you're referring to. I've tried it briefly and it seems to offer everything that a proper install on a separate partition does.
