Switching OS' on personal laptop
I'm considering switching to Ubnuntu [10.10 or notebook?] but I just wanted to know if certain files would be compatable.
I have about 80GB of anime, all .avi but some needed special codecs, and wanted to make sure they'd work because there's no way I'm trying to get them again. [It took too long.]
Some programs I use I know I can get to work via Wine. [Guild wars, Pokesav, AR Code manager.]
I'm thinking about dual booting Vista Home Pro/Ubuntu[w/Wine] until I'm 100% sure everything works properly, then changing to single boot Ubuntu. [Is this hard? I can't find much infor on this.]
Also, would I need to modify anything or should it just install properly? [Laptop is a eMachines e525, IIRC]
