Does Ubuntu 17.10.1 with Linux 4.13 kernel support the Intel Optane Memory for the purpose of dual booting with Windows 10?
This Intel support article states that Linux is not supported and only Windows 10 64-bit is.

Even I had this very same question an year ago. And the answer is that we can't. Though, it's easy to dual boot another operating system, you will have significantly slower boot time. Performance wise, there won't be much of a difference. But, it would be comparatively slower than what the speed you would get from other PCs without optane modeule. Intel is still silent about this and we are not expecting any updates on this anytime sooner.
