AMD or INTEL:which processor better for linux(ubuntu)
hi.i'm mew to linux but will start using it(ubuntu distro) as part of a dual boot system soon.i'm buying a computer soon.it will have 1gb ram,160 gb harddisk,but i'm not sure which processor to buy.
i can buy the AMD 2.2ghz(dual bus) one or the intel 3.2ghz one.both have nearly same speed on a windows system(some websites say AMD is a bit better).i'll completely migrate to linux in bout a year,thogh initially i'll have dual boot windows and linux(ubuntu).so which processor should i buy(the cost difference is bout 1000Rs or bout 22$)
in a dual boot system ,can i access files stored in the windows partition(mp3 for eg)from the linux partition and vice versa??
