6 Using and installing Linux yourselfIndexup to index

I do not recommend installing Linux as a “dual boot” option. Installing in a Virtual Machine (VM) is a better option, because:

  1. You don’t risk damaging your host machine by making a mistake setting up dual-boot. A botched dual-boot can easily wipe out everything.
  2. You can run multiple different Linux VMs. Try them all!
  3. You don’t have to shut down your main host to play with Linux. You can have both the host and Linux available at the same time. With dual-boot, you have to close everything and reboot the machine to get into Linux, and that’s a pain you don’t need.
  4. You can take a snapshot of your VM before you do anything, so you can always recover back to the snapshot if something goes wrong.

Here are some student options for continuing to use Linux/Unix:
