Hello all, new here. I have finally switched to a Mac. Tired of all the problems I'm having with my windows laptop. I ordered a retina macbook pro, 15inches with 1tb harddrive. I'll mainly use this laptop for school, I'm studying computer networking (we use a lot of virtual machines). Problem is, I'll be using a lot of windows program in those classes. I'm aware of the possibility of using visualization, and while I will use those, I'd still like to have a native windows install of my laptop. I thought of something and let me know if it's possible. I'll divide my internal hdd in 3 : 1/4 space for Mac partition, 1/4 for windows 8.1 partition and the other half would be for all my user files. Music, movies, comic books, virtual machines, downloads and such. Each system partition would be used only for installing programs used with those system, and all user files would be on the bigger of the partitions. I know mac uses a different file system than windows, but I know it's possible to install drivers to limit that problem, paragon-ntfs for mac and macdrive hfs+ for windows. Would it be possible to have the bigger of the 3 partition formatted as ntfs and use one of those drivers so I could read and write on that disk no problem with whichever OS I'm using? Once I'm finished with school I'll switch to mac completely but right now I still need to use windows :/ Thanks for the help guys and sorry if some parts (or all of it) of this message didn't make sense, english isn't my main language.
