I know that many of my questions are commonly discussed, but i wanted input on whether dual booting would be a good option as well as a few specifics
my current status:
I have a mythtv desktop, fc5, works nicely.
My second machine, laptop, is windows, pentium m 2 gigs of ram, ati 9700 128mb, internal wireless card, http://www.powernotebooks.com/specs/PowerPro/m5-6.php
i use my laptop mostly for email, word/excel/office, internet, solidworks(CAD), ut2004 or the occasional game, syncing my calandar with my razr, music.
i have always been interested with linux, and after using it on my mythtv i am even more so. i want to know if i can really do everying on linux that i do on windows, with the same ease of use. ut2004 can be played on linux, but what about my vid card, ati isnt nice always? i have looked into wine, which would be good for office i think, but i wonder about problems with it or what i might loose with that over windows. i also wonder about how big to make my swap, 2 gigs, same as ram?
