I for one have had FC2T3 installed on my main machine since it came out
and I can't believe how solid it is. I have no problems with dual boot.
I dual boot windows 2000 and have hadn't a single problem even though I
seldom ever use windows. The Fedora software developers have done a
magnificent job.
