I use exactly that setup and it is fully satisfactory.

If you really want to be paranoid, put the linux on a thumb drive and set the BIOS to boot from the drive. You can use this every time you boot up, or just when you choose to.

To be fair the laptop is my home setup and I use other devices when I am out. I do all the stuff where I want security, like bank transactions, from home on a clean loaded OS.

I suppose this prevents exactly nothing, but I like it.

9am and Neade was already (still?) so wasted drunk that he couldn't even read straight?

Not sure if I should congratulate or pity him....
