But i think sundialsvcs said it best "dual-booting sux", but on the other hand is totally up to you. What i think you should do (but that's just me) is try it out, i mean you probably used windows all your life, and obviously you don't seem to happy about it, so try linux out, see how it works, see how you like it. Because quite frankly if you install both windows and linux, guess where are you gonna spend the most time, obviously on windows because that's what you're used to, and most of the time when you're on windows you'll get to lazy to restart into linux, so you would still end up doing everything on windows So as most of these nice gentleman agree here, just make a clean linux install, and try it out, and hey i bet you'll love it. and even if run into any problems, anyone on here would be more that glad to help you out, no doubt about it.

So i wish you the best of luck, and truly sorry if by any means i offended you, wasn't my intention.
nah, it takes a lot more to offend me than wether you approve of my computer prefrences and choices :P,

that being said i do appreciate your advice! I have made a copy of UBUNTU- my chosen version of linux. as soon as i am able to figure out the install issues i mentioned above and in the UBuntu forums, i too will be a linexian(forgive me but im attempting to coin a new word- Lenexian: a person who uses linux as a preferred OS)

as far as the games.. Im a bit of a gamer, I like my xbox360, but i also like world of warcraft. generally i play more console than computer so.

anyway, thanks for reinforcing what others have advised!


ghost, windows
