This question already has an answer here:

If I am installing Ubuntu now, will I be able to install another Linux on the same drive without problems? can I access programs, files installed on ubuntu etc?

Reading about the install process and root/home/swap partitions has me a bit confused as it is, and I'm more focused on making sure Ubuntu doesn't cause a premature death to my SSD. Ubuntu is free, SSDs are not.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

since you're planning to have windows on a separate drive, your question really boils down to installing ubuntu on its own SSD drive, which is why I suggest this might be a duplicate. –  ImaginaryRobots Oct 30 '13 at 16:03
