Just a quick question really. I noticed that on either partition, Linux or Windows, that I may suspend either system and then boot into the other. Since suspending an OS does not write data to disk, the contents of RAM are preserved. As such, would it not be true then that booting into Linux would overwrite the contents of RAM and thus the context of Windows (or just the other OS that was suspended) prior to suspending?
Suspend may be to RAM and/or to disk. If you suspend and can boot another OS, than for sure you have suspended to disk.
If you close the lid of a laptop and then on reopen can work almost immediately then you probably had a suspend to RAM, but this doesn't allow you to boot another OS (as the OS suspended this way immediately reactivates).
The suspend to disk can run into problems if you have multiple Linux versions and they share the space (e.g. swap) where the suspend information is written.
