I'd like to see if I can use Gramps on my laptop. I currently don't have Linux at all. Gramps doesn't work so well with the csv import on my Microsoft 7 computer. If I get a boot-up Linux CD would I be able to use Gramps with this condition? What are the disadvantages if any to have a boot-up disk vs. an installation of Linux?

I don't think Linux will change that, because Gramps works exactly the
same on that, except maybe for exotic characters.
CSV import can be quite tricky, and many times the easiest way to work
with it is try an export first, to see what column names you really
need. It's a long time since I did an import myself, but I think Gramps
uses localized column names.
