I am a long time Ubuntu user but have never run a dual boot box with Windows. Unfortunately I must do so on a new laptop just purchased and it has 4 partitions!!! Kind of wacky.
Anyway, my question is...
1) Can I run a dual boot machine on which Win 7 and Ubuntu can share a dedicated partition for data?
2) If so, can that partition be encrypted as well?
I may not want to do this because I hate the idea of Windows touching anything that my Linux does but may not have a choice.
