Hello, I am new to these forums and Linux (but not Unix). I need to transition from Windows 7 to Linux, but I would like to keep the Windows option for any problematic programs: I need to be able to dual-boot. My Windows disk is quite full. Would I be better to get a new, additional disk and install Linux on that OR get a much larger disk and place Linux/Windows partitions on that? I need to be able to copy data between the Linux and Windows drives (both ways) and would like to use the Linux drive for gaming.
