I'm trying to install Ubuntu on my computer based on Windows 7 SP1.

Does the installation of different OSs in the same machine reduce the performance of it?

What about of my case?

Thanks a lot!

No. Unless your disk space is scarce, the performance of either OS shouldn't be affected. –  edwin Mar 21 '14 at 1:33
