The NTFS wiki article covers how you can read "Win" from Linux but NOT
the other way, how do you read Linux fs from Windows.

Well the idea was to collect tips & trix that isn't covered normally
in dual boot articles.

Normally is the installation and grub tweaks covered, and noting after that!

So my idea is to take it to the next step and collect stuff the will
enhance the work experience in dual boot and to get people to easily
migrate/shift between two different OS without thinking its a hassle!

So is it possible to sync OpenOffice, pidgin, thunderbird
settings/data between the different OS then that's what I would like
to cover in this wiki page.

Im against the war between the OS's and I want to make peace between
them and let the user choose what OS she/he wants to use for the
moment without a lot of work.
