Suppose you have dual boot one with windows and another is ubuntu. You have a storage partition which is mounted on Ubuntu (you must be installing NTFS on ubuntu) and as well on windows.

Note: NTFS is the file system that the Windows NT or windows based operating system uses for storing and retrieving files on a hard disk.

Now you can make a fair guess data is stored in Windows format where Linux is accessing it in windows way. (I hope I understood your problem correctly)

Yes, Thanks Sir

But still confused with below sentence,
"You have a storage partition which is mounted on Ubuntu (you must be installing NTFS on ubuntu) and as well on windows."

Does it mean that we have mounted root directory of both OS with each other?
or Does it mean that we are actually installing NTFS on linux?
If it is like that then after that linux will have 2 file-systems?
I mean EXT and NTFS both?
Is it possible sir?

I am confused with all 32/64 bit architecture for Hardware/OS/Binary, Can someone please help in clarifying this queries?

  1. Of'course 64 bit hardware is faster than 32 bit, still there are people who prefer 32 bit over 64 bit hardware, Why so?
  2. If I have 32 bit Hardware then On that can I run 64 bit OS? (and vice versa)
  3. If I have a 64 bit Hardware and 32 bit OS then what will be the speed of my OS, as per 32 bit or as per 64 bit? (and vice versa)
  4. If I have 32 bit OS then can I run binary of 64 bit on that? (and vice versa)
  5. Is it necessary to compile binary with 32/64 bit both or we can compile with any and use it in both?
  6. Is the speed of the process also depends on type of binary that I have? For example, If I have 64 bit hardware and 64 bit OS but I have a binary which is compiled with 32 bit compiler then what will be the speed difference?

P.S. I know its basic and silly queries but lets clear now before it gets too late. :)

Lets say, I have a system with only 1 core and with Windows OS. Using VMWare I am installing Linux on that. Can I share this core for VM and Base OS?

I mean if we have number of core 4 then in vmware we can assign 2 core. So, 2 Core for Linux and 2 core for windows. But what if I have number of core only 1, or if i have number of core 4 and in vmware I assign 4 core to Linux.

Will it share the core time wise?
