    Although Windows's merits are few and far between.
    Anyone have any ideas? Guesses? Rants?

    This kind of topic arises a lot. And it always leads to altercations between microslaves and linuxfr33kz. So Im gonna stay out of it this time. Have fun though.

    Hi, I'm new to the forums. Please don't hurt me.

    I use both Debian Linux & Windows 2000 on a 2 hard drive system. True it's a rather complex system, being built from two other computers (I call it my "Frankenputer") but they both work fine. Call me greedy, I want both.

    If you're considering a dual boot system, here's a tip: set Linux to boot from a floppy. That way if you need to reinstall Windows (or even Linux) it won't screw up your bootloader because you won't be using a bootloader.

    I've at one time (with only a 19gig drive) ran w3.1, w98, wxp, Redhat Linux 8, and also attached a personal storage partition.
    I like PowerQuest Partition Magic because it makes it easy to do things like that

    Oh, but I value your opinion! And I intend to have quite a bit of fun, although the sparks haven't begun to fly yet, I think they will!

    Humph. I know it's been discussed more times I can count, but I like these posts. They provide refreshing insight into the fierce battle between the Penguins and the Almighty Dollar.
