So.... if install linux ubuntu using dual boot option, set up zcash, then switch over to windows to do some W work, is the mining going to stop?
Sure ... You have 2 ways to work dual
You use a two different PC
You set up a Virtual-Enviroment for Linux or Windows
In dualboot u always must shutdown the running OS to switch to the other OS
OS = Operating System
Edit: Third way, you can install one OS and work on this
Off course, because you need restart Linux to enter Win
