So I made the switch to Ubuntu Gnome recently, it's been great albeit a lot of work to come from using windows solely for years to the open source stratosphere. Now I'm trying to re-orient myself and basically re-learn how to computer.
I'm a big gamer and was mulling over dual booting windows for this reason(done Wine, playforlinux), however one of the biggest things to push me to Linux was the plethora of security flaws in Windows (those recent leaks cemented my belief that I made a good choice).
Now my biggest question is does dual booting windows compromise the security and basically undo one of the major reasons to switch to Linux? Will Windows back-doors and exploits (both government based and single actor based) mean my Linux boot and partition is just as unsafe?
Any insight for a fresh convert would be great!
