It most certainly is! Ubuntu now has mature support for NTFS, so you can use it without all your files being eaten. Follow the How To Enable NTFS Write Support (ntfs-3g) On Ubuntu Feisty Fawn from HowtoForge for a detailed guide on enabling this.

After all, the Wubi system is just a loopmounted disk image, stored on a NTFS partition. –  grawity Oct 26 '09 at 13:47
Yeah, but I tend to ignore things like that. It confuses me… :P –  David Pearce Oct 26 '09 at 14:20

On the installs I have used it started with adding ntfs support http://www.ubuntugeek.com/widows-ntfs-partitions-readwrite-support-made-easy-in-ubuntu-feisty.html
