You can say that W7 makes it harder to dual with any Linux distro.
Not in my experience.

This sentence was poorly stated, i agree. What i meant was that it is not as
easy to
accomplish as with its predecessors. Ofcourse, when one knows what to do,
everything becomes
easy... When it is configured properly, it works just fine as with the other

It is simple enough provided that the person or business that installed the
machine first with
Windows did it with multiboot in mind. If they use the 4 primaries, then it is
quite difficult -
but that is not the fault of Windows 7. It is easier if they also left free
unpartitioned space,
but again, that is the fault of the installer. W7, for example, has a good
utility to shrink a
partition even while it is in use. Of course, it has to be done early, or it
will be impossible to
shrink by a fair amount. W7 has a multibooter that is capable of booting Linux.
It can be
configured to use UTC in the CMOS... I find it easier than its predecessors.
