I have had online classes with my university since 2007, and I have spent so much time on troubles with the video conference program we have used. Even after we have changed video conference software (from Marratech to Adobe Connect) the problems remain.
So my question is: Is the Linux-variant FreeBSD better than Windows XP for video conferencing?
Would I get a more stable connection?
Also, can I install FreeBSD on one partition, and Windows XP Pro on another partition? When starting my laptop, is it possible to immediately choose if I want to start FreeBSD or Windows XP Pro?
My laptop is HP Compaq nx7300, Windows XP Pro SP3 English version x86,
and a netbook ASUS Eee PC1000He 10".
