  1. I have installed windows and ubuntu on my machine with ubuntu as the boot loader. If I install phoenix os, will it replace the current boot loader or the ubuntu bootloader will add it to its list of operating systems?

  2. Will it work with Elementary OS as te original os?

  3. Any review of performance?
