A friend of mine has both Win 7 and a Linux OS (Ubuntu, I guess) in his computer. I know it is possible to have two Operating Systems in your computer. Though, I am curious about the potential issues you should be aware of.
What type of internet connection are you using now? I am curious if there are any of you still using dial-up connection. It is not the fastest type of connection, but for some people, it is the only connection available.
