Another Newbie

Been visiting neowin for a month or two as a resource for Windows 8 and Windows 8 Phone news. Thought I might as well sign up proper, in case I had something to say.

Bit of an unfocused geek myself. The MacBook Pro is triple boot OS X 10.8 / Windows 8 / Ubuntu 12.04. I write code for a living, primarily server-side Web stuff on Linux machines.

So ... hey.

Welcome! How did you tri-boot, if I might ask? Did you just make 3 partitions and install an OS on each one?

Yep. I use reFIT as the boot manager. From a fresh OS X 10.8 install, I split the hard drive into three partitions, installed Windows 8, then installed Ubuntu. The main caution was to make sure that Ubuntu installed GRUB to its own partition instead of attempting the MBR.

      Hi everyone, I know you are well, I'm here to share my feeling and get from yours in various issue. Actually when I'm going to search to get a solution about my browser issue then Google suggests me about it, I mean Neowin. Though here has many others issues that really important for me like web design etc. I think, I'm in the right place, what do you think?
