I just disabled WU on my 7 box. Except for SDR, I don't use it anymore. Will be putting a Mint install soon. Start using that for my non-windows dev work.

So, I have a W7 64 bit box with 2 Samsung 1TB SSDs. W7 is installed on one drive.
I wonder if I could put a version of Linux on the second drive and have a dual boot system?

I wonder about drivers; especially for the ASUS Z87 MOBO chipset.

Linux is designed for dual booting. You will have a very easy install if you have two drives.

You can try out Linux by booting a live CD (outdated terminology but still used). Just burn the .iso image of the installer to optical media or a USB drive, and boot from it for a trial run before installing it.

Hi Mongo,
Count me among the people who have just disabled WU - it's not worth the hassle to me.

For Linux, the drivers are normally compiled into the kernel. If you are using a current version of an actively-maintained distribution, it is unlikely you will have any issues with drivers. As others have suggested, try it with a "Live CD" or USB boot for the distribution and version you are considering - any driver issues should become apparent quickly.

Note that while the Linux community has developed a filesystem driver that will read and write NTFS filesystems (NTFS-3G), even reading Linux filesystems in Windows can be difficult. If you have a format-neutral device like a NAS on your network, it may be simpler to exchange data by placing it there. Or you might consider creating a partition formatted as FAT32 - Windows and Linux can both operate in such a partition.

Good luck with the Linux project.
