Everything I need is right here.
Dual boot remains a good option for those that can't break free. Although, now, most of us have easily sufficient systems to use a VM (except not so much for you).

I make reinstall checklists in order to cover all the points and note any problems and fixes. What this means is that I have a grand total of 5 operating systems to configure! That means I have applications to configure on all of them! That's a lot of hours spent!
But for me Linux daily use is up in the 97% range and occasionally a need for windows..

Dude! Fist bump Now I don't have Windows in the mix at all, but that's how I do it also.

So I'm not meaning to troll But Is "privacy" really all that Linux brings to the table for you? Perhaps give that some more thought.
