| Not normally being a huge fan of Windows

| Even though it is not deemed as necessary since
| it is possible to dual-boot without it,
| inexperienced users will find this is vastly
| safer to use than rolling the dice and hoping
| you remember which partition is which when

| The EE Times reported earlier this week that the Dell E4200 and E4300 laptops
| are running both Linux and Windows on the same machine. Why both you ask? The
| Linux OS provides a quick boot for checking email and other "light" computing
| duties while the Windows side allows "heavier duty" computing like running
| Microsoft Office applications. It runs with two chips, one from ARM and one
| from Intel. The ARM chip, provides instant on booting and is much more power
| efficient, while the Intel chip provides the juice to run apps that require
| more computing power.
