After our discussions earlier this month, and the failure of my older 
FreeBSD PC, I have decided to get a new compact PC based on the Intel 
Atom, which will be used mostly for time serving as a stratum-1 server 
(GPS/PPS), but occasionally as a Windows-7 test-bed.  So the question 
arises - which order to install the two operating systems?

A - Install FreeBSD and add Windows-7?

B - Install Windows-7 and then add FreeBSD?

I'm much more comfortable with Windows-7, so I'm tempted by route (B), and 
I suspect that FreeBSD may play better as being the second OS than 
Windows-7 would.  I'm very open to comments.
