i am getting a macbook pro with a 2.5 c2d so i can assume that should have virtualisation. i can run linux inside my windows but it say it will slow my hd down. is it worth instaling it along side mt previous os. if not, then why. sorry for being a noob

Just make sure that the chip supports virtualisation. Look up the chip before you buy.

is it worth running ubuntu alongside with windows, since i can't do anything virtual on my comp. If it is how much will it slow down my comp.?

If you are talking about getting virtual machine to recognize the graphics card, it will not.

well for a bit people were telling me i cannot get linux to run on my comp via vmware and have now proven that theory wrong due to efforts of my friends. i got sound to work now thru vmware settings. i got ati on ubuntu and all i need is driver. but because i am such a noob at linux i don't understand how install programs with bin and rpm files. i am so lost. any expertise i would appreciate. i have the driver for ati but don't know how to run it on linux. maybe you can't use vid card via vmware but if i gave up like people said to in beginning i would not have ubuntu running on my comp like i have currently running now. call me stubborn, but it has paid off to not take every ones advice.

Can we get a Iso with everything already set for install with this added GPU2 in Linux via WINE?
