Hi all,

recently, I've noticed a lot of questions regarding dual-boot of Fedora and (mostly) MS Windows. The questions are all pretty similar and though are the answers.

Since I am currently affected by the damn decision of installing a dualboot or running a virtual machine (one of my clients requires me to deliver MS products I came across this guide which I think is a pretty good knowledge base. It covers a quite a lot of the common questions and answers.

So, here is my question: Why don't we link this doc on the startpage of as a sticky post or a frequently sought post, or something else?

I would suggest to install windows in qemu. It runs flawlessly at essentially native speed and no need to be worried about partitioning, booting, losing files and so on. To share files there is even no need of a samba setup. Just install a free sftp software under windows and move files around this way.

@florian: it's a very good idea, but only if this guide is clear and understandable for every one. This guide should be linked automatically to every dual boot (Windows, EFI, BIOS etc.) question. This web-page should be also cleaned up, because of missing sort criterions for showing relevant questions, it is hard to read and it looks like very untidy.
