I am a linux ubuntu user since 12 years and noticed that since win 8.1 it is hard to install and 
maintain dual boot systems.

This is not about LO but about MS crashing both the Windows file system 
and GRUB.

If you have not run the Windows 10 Anniversary upgrade, you might want 
to consider it as a new OS install that crashes GRUB and messes with the 
Windows partition where it need major repair.

Yesterday, I upgraded my older DELL laptop that runs both Windows 10 and 
Ubuntu 16.04.

Win10 gave me a icon for the Anniversary Upgrade Assistant.  IT took 
hours for the download and verify it.  During the install, at about 30% 
complete, the install required a reboot.  GRUB errors was all I got.  I 
had to use a boot repair disk twice to get the laptop to be able to boot 
at all.  When I was able to boot to Windows, it took about 20 minutes 
for Windows to auto-fix the file system. Then it took 6 more hours to 
finish the install.  It took less time to install the Win7 to Win10 
upgrade, than it took the Anniversary upgrade.

Yes, MS messes with the GRUB system when it gets install alongside of 
Ubuntu, but it never caused so much trouble as it did yesterday 
afternoon to late evening.  6+ hours to install the upgrade and fix the 
laptop so it would boot again, was not expected.
