You want to ruin it? Why not just format it then, add the extra space into your Linux partition?

You can re-install Linux very easily. If you have a separate /home partition, then I'd avoid re-formatting it when you reformat the other partitions. that way you keep the data on it. Also, you should avoid reformatting your Win partition.
