Running multiple operating systems side-by-side

This is a package of demos and tutorials on how to run Windows and Linux systems side by side. I had planned to post the whole package here, but because of my fancy formatting it was not possible. I therefore ask you to operate it from my Skydrive link below.

You can either read it in your browser with the Word Web App (double click on the icon in the link) or download it to your system (right click on the icon in the link) so that you can study it leisurely on your own system. It is a two page PDF document that contains all the controls to display the content.

The content is the following:

Two demos how to run a couple of Linux distros (Mint Mate and Zorin) side by side with Windows 7
One demo on how to run Windows 7 and Windows 8 side by side
Detailed tutorials on how to install Mint Mate and Zorin in VMware Player
Five video tutorials on how to setup Mint Mate
Three video tutorials on how to setup 3 Linux applications
A video on how to setup Zorin

OK understand. You can move any data, files and folders between both systems. Even between multiple virtual systems as you can see in the first video.
