I ordered a Lenovo laptop, and it has 500GB of hard drive space. It is coming without an OS. I want to install Ubuntu and Windows 7 x64. However, I still want access to shared files, such as my music and videos. What would you suggest for partioning lengths?
The windows machine will be used for games, visual studio and general stuff. Ubuntu will be used for.. well I don't know, I just really want to try linux =) I guess programming in everything except Direct-X stuff (XNA, xbox, etc.)
Also, I could get an external HDD, but I'd prefer to keep it all on the laptop - 500gb should be enough, right?
