Re: Anything I should know about Ubuntu and this set up?
I agree. Given Windows' inability to boot on >2TiB drives on BIOS-based systems, and given that Microsoft, by all accounts, seems uninterested in fixing this flaw, I expect there'll be a lot of frustration in a year or two among Windows users with BIOS-based systems. Of course, if you regularly replace your computer every two years or so, this might not matter; but as I wrote above, UEFI at this point is a future-proofing technology. OTOH, you can't boot Windows XP or earlier on these boards, but you can certainly run such OSes in a virtual machine -- they have their own "firmware" that can be of a different type than that on the real computer.
