comment Will it degrade my SSD life if I use a dualboot of Windows and Ubuntu?
Although not directly related to your question, you may also want to consider whether running one of your OSes in a VM would be a better solution. Having to reboot your entire system to switch between OSes is inconvenient, to say the least.

comment Proper way of installing new SSD in a dual-boot machine
Point taken, but the OP did not specify any use-cases or software, so the minor performance hit may be irrelevant--hence my "It depends" comment. Your compatibility example won't be an issue if the host OS is Windows, as I alluded to in my answer: If you have a fancy graphics card that you use for computationally-intensive tasks in a particular OS (e.g., 3D games...), you might want to make that your host OS and run the other OSes in VMs.

comment Two Windows 8 Cursor Arrows, Only one mouse?
I've also had this issue before and I think rebooting fixed it. It happened again today in Windows 8.1, which brought me to this question. The second cursor, which never moves, remains on top regardless of what other windows are open. I don't recall installing any new software lately, and I'm sure if the NSA had installed something they would have called me first.

comment Does a USB 2.0 device connected to a USB 3.0 hub slow down the hub to 2.0 speeds?
@BenVoigt I had only considered the physical connectors and wires originally. Thanks for the clarification.
