    Poll: How many dual boot and how many do not!

    This poll does not include server, only desktops.
    I believe this poll will show how many Ubuntu users are using duel boot systems because of things they do are not available yet in Ubuntu. I myself need a Windows OS to run a few software packages that are not supported in Linux and will not run in Wine.
    Also I have a piece of hardware (MagicJack) that is not supported yet so I need to duel boot.

    No duel boot here.
    If you can't run it under Linux you probably don't need it.
    That's my motto

    I still have a dual boot set-up ... but rarely use it as I virtualize most of the time. Does that count?

    I tri-boot with Ubuntu 9.04 (main OS), Windows Vista and Windows 7 RC (though I have many more OS virtualized).
    I use Ubuntu most because I love tinkering, and it's much faster than Windows Vista. On my PC, Windows 7 runs at about the same speed.
    I use Windows for games, and Win32 and C# application development. I use Ubuntu for everything else.

    I've got Windows XP and Ubuntu installed. I plan to upgrade XP to 7 once the RTM version of 7 is released..

    I dual boot with Windows XP, although I haven't booted into Windows in months. I keep it there in case I need it some day.
