I don't know what Ubuntu does. But, you can install FreeBSD on a machine that also runs MS-Win. The traditional way is to 'dual-boot' the machine. But, you can also install some virtual machine software and run both under that. You can also install wine and run MS-Win stuff on FreeBSD. There are some limits to that I think, but people do it. I run a dual (or triple) boot. It is documented in the handbook and works just fine. > I'm just a person that can't afford more than one computer cause I live > in a nursing home and I would like to be able to use one computer to > choose what I want to boot into, such as windows or unbuntu and maybe a > freebsd choice. > > I don't always want to boot into windows, except for the 3 apps I have > to use windows for. Basically, that is what I do. Mostly I boot FreeBSD and use it for my desktop. But, sometimes I need to use Photoshop which I have on the MS-Win side and printing labels seems to work better with Word than Openoffice, so I boot MS-Win for those. ////jerry > > I do boot into ubuntu 90% of the time and enjoy it so much, but I have > read about freebsd and researched it fully and I wish I could be able to > run freebsd as with all the apps freebsd has to offer.
