Is it possible to put linux on a computer as a dual os with windows? I know you can have multiple windows installations on one computer and then when booting you can select which one you want, is there a way to do this with a linux installation? The reason I would like to do this is I don't have any computer at the moment that I can put linux on that isn't my main computer and I don't want to lose my only windows-based computer.....so, yah.
I'll do some searching, just posting here to see if anyone knows. I'll post back if I find the answer I'm looking for.
I also want to do this because I want to start making programs that work platform-independantly, as all of the stuff I've done thus far has been solely windows based and I would like to learn to use linux.
also, what in your opinions is the best linux distro to use? I tried gentoo linux a while ago....which resulted in me having nightmares for a few days after that (took about 20 hours to install, and then it didn't work)
