Heh... (Not keeping to the chat, I got bored after reading two page posts)

When ever I finish building my new computer, I would like a dual boot WinXP and Linux.... So I can code both Windows and Linux apps....

(A tri boot, if posible, then have Win, Linux, and Mac... Muhahahaha! j/k... ^_^ )

Yeah, I dual boot XP Professional and SuSE 9 Personal. I'm not happy with SuSE, though. I think I will try Ubuntu; everyone seems to be crazy over it.

Read my last post on the third page...Oh and in order for that triboot system to work, you would need both a Pentium IV(or athalon, xeon, etc.) and an G4 processor. OS X is not meant for an intel processor...

I do know that you can have two of the same processors(AMP system) but two different? I don't know...

Heh, you're so dead wrong, it's not even funny. You can dual-boot or even trio-boot operating systems on an 8088 if you've got a hard drive large enough to hold the OSes, the CPU has zilch to do with it. Also, OS X will soon run on Intel processors, since Macintosh has decided to forsake Motorolla processors in favor of Intel processors. :lol:

quite a few, but I suggest two OSes, partition the disk in half so at least you have a decent amount of space in each...

You could fit each distro of Linux, plus every version of MS-DOS, PC-DOS, DR-DOS, and FreeDOS, plus all versions of Windows 1 thru 3, and then Windows 95, 98, ME, NT3, NT4, Windows 2000, Windows XP, OS/2, and if you feel like it, maybe even a copy of V2_OS.

OR...

One copy of Windows Vista.

How much space would that leave for each partition?
Oh yeah, and I forgot about the Apple-Intel movement...

I was thinking about the fact that windows and OS X were on different processor lines so you would need the ATI G4... But then you reminded me of the apple- intel movement... I screwed up...

bootdvd's... what's next? Windows pre-installed on a 1 TeraByte harddrive?

Unfortunately, no one can be told what Qbinux is. You have to see it for yourself.

Anything to get an inferior OS that will keep money in Gate's pocket.
