XP Home becuase I just can't see a reason to spend money on XP Pro for this Laptop. XP Media Center on the other box becuase its cheap and XP and it is a media center. My old system was a Win 2k Pro priated copy becuase I was in HS when I built it the parts set me back enough. The other system I built around the same time is a Win 98 SE becuase it was simple and good at the time but they need to replace that PC now.

gunslinger: it should just install? You boot to the cd and run the installer. It fully supports vmware so try that?

Default Dual Booting Win XP Pro and Linux

Just a quick question. I am currently using Windows XP Pro on all my PCs and laptops.

I am interested in Linux Ubuntu. I was told that I would have to do a complete reinstall of Windows and then install Linux. Is that true. I really hate reinstalling Windows. Can someone help with the information. Thanks

nothing to be afraid of, just put it on a virtual machine and play with it. The only real problem i have found with vista is the lack of software that actually works with it.
