it isnt fine at all. dual-boot means paying M$ for a stinky OS.
Would you think Billy Gee cares if you use linux more often than win$
for as long as you buy his OS everytime you buy a machine? I am only

for Win$ Home Ed.
doin dual boot is like always having a green socks around in case
someone gives you a geen shoes for christmas.
