This is a very random question. I've been blessed with getting a free laptop that is newer than what I've been using for the past 3 years. My main laptop is running Ubuntu 12.04 while I am planning on putting a fresh install of Windows 7 on the older one (secondary). I'm doing this with a though that if I encounter something that I can't get to work on Linux, I can have Windows to help me out as a back up. But in a way it seems like a waste of a fine working computer.
This forum is full of intelligent users, maybe someone has a better set up idea?
