come live here and try to repeat that sentence
online banking works for normal conumers. digital certificate+firefox, Chrome or Opera.
but for companies a special USB stick with chip inside is needed and they only make windows drivers for that chip. some banks work with special card readers. usally they too need windows to run.
there is a bank that supports all OS. there are two issues with them though - 1. they do not have an office in my town. 2. would have to pay extra comission when getting money on ATM sicne they have only few ATMs. 3. their solution revolves arround using Oracle Java which is a very safe platform i believe....
I need to look into dual boot. Is there any way that I can toggle back and forth between windows 7 and Ubuntu? I have Ubuntu installed on a second HD and sometimes I need to go to Win7 to do business things through Web. I play CS and need to run Source. I'm a little worried about my graphics not running clean too. I don't want to have to shut down windows to start Ubuntu. What do I need to do?
You will have to log out and then choose which OS at startup.
Unless your computer is starved for memory, I suggest you try installing VirtualBox on your Windows machine, then install Ubuntu into a "virtual machine." This avoids the need for dual-booting. In fact, many computers these days come with all four primary hard drive partitions in use which makes formatting a machine for dual-boot a daunting task.
Make sure you install the "extensions pack" as well.
With a VM, you can switch between operating systems just by a mouse click or Alt-Tab.
we can install both operating system in our system is it posssible or not? incase is it possible howcan we install

I understand only too well, because I keep Windows XP running in VirtualBox on my desktop, almost solely because there is no Linux personal computer software for doing US income-tax returns (and because I refuse to prepare my return "in the cloud").
P.S. OTOH, if my impression that you live in Colorado is correct, then I'd gladly trade locales with you, especially in summertime.
@rewylls: actually the online versions of the tax programs (like Tax Act which is the one i use and absolutely love) are VERY SECURE and encypted also...read the information on their link regarding security:
So, you shouldn't be so afraid about using it...and it would give you the opportunity to finally free yourself of that "windows noose"
Been using them (first Turbo Tax and in recent years switched to Tax Act) for years and never been compromised in any way...
