    Nothing to get excited about. Same old story.

    Thanks for telling.

    I am not even sure if I'll ever "trust" Microsoft again due to the fact that they probably have deals with the FBI/CIA.
    Some features are great and pretty neat, but overall - NOTHING compared to the world linux (especially the guys from OpenSuse) are creating and... DEVELOPING.

    Just my opinion.

    You can multiboot both safely - however as with any Windows, you need to install 7 first - then Linux or install and then repair Grub.

    Yeah, the same way we shouldn't trust SELinux because it was developed
    by the NSA.

    think how much time you could have saved if you had left Redmond's
    products when i did (in '95 when i got tired of waiting for the FIX to
    all the Win 3.1 problems which the hucksters had promised for THREE
    years...it was gonna be GREAT, and solve ALL computer problems for all
    people....right! what a mess Win95 was..)

    But, I have tried some of them on Virtual Box.

    Dual booting with that setup on my machine now. I installed 7 over my XP install and therefore had to boot from the SUSE install disk to repair GRUB. Other than that, I have not had any problems. So to answer your question, yes they work in dual boot.
