Did they fix Chrome's security issues?

I use Ubuntu every now and then, but I don't have any real use for it.

I use Gentoo and ubuntu.
I love the terminal. Its very useful. Plus, everything is fully customizable.
Linux is far better in my opinion. Plus, 8 second startup times in Gentoo is far better than windows will ever do.

I have it installed on my second computer. I barely use it but it's still nice to have. More reliable than Windows that's for sure.

I should dual boot this HDD.

I wonder if its possible to boot both OS at once and use one on each of my monitors.

Nah.

Ubuntu is very good for noob's. Learn the terminal. Use it for EVERYTHING!

ubuntu and Fedora are the only two distros that I know of that has a graphical installer. The rest are command line version, this is where knowing how to use the terminal is useful.

Good luck! Dont give up on it.

Also, the ubuntu forums are awesome for help.
