    Windows 10 Might Not Allow You to Use Dual Boot

    Yes, why not? I haven't read something about dual booting problems specifically with Windows 10. Of course at the moment the OS is in Technical Preview, so any kind of difficulties or failures could be caused because of the unstable state of W10.

    Nah, this has nothing to do with Microsoft and Windows. This is about OEMs. This is a really dumb/misleading article title.

    Thanks NickTh; can you please give me an easy guide how to install Ubuntu along side Win 10 TP in same HDD.

    Probably this is because of the "Fast Boot" feature in W10 (as well as in Win8.1). First make sure that you shutdown Windows10 completely, (I think the same guide applies in Windows 10). If the disk is in hibernate mode, Ubuntu installer cannot write in the disk and can't create a proper dual boot . After that, boot from Ubuntu installation media and try again. If this also fail, you might need to go through the Advanced Tools (in Ubuntu installer) and partitioning the disk manually.

    Get yourself a copy of Virtual Box VM (Free) and then you can run whatever flavor of Linux you wish. For that matter you can run whatever flavor of Windows you would like also. (Just a Thought). . . .:)

    Thank Lee; some people say OPS runs slower in VM!

    If you want to test the OS, to see some features or using it for learning purposes, then VM is the way to go . You will save yourself a lot of effort and possible failures.
    If it runs slower or faster depends on a bunch of stuff including : Hardware Virtualization support, the Virtual machine itself, host specs, guest requirements, maybe more.
    But if you need to do some real work in Linux and especially if you need the power of Graphics, then try the real dual boot install.

    It is likely that they will run slower unless you are using a "bare metal" VM manager.

    That said, the WEI rating of my W7 VMs is much higher than the WEI rating on my W7 Host OS.

    The main difference I've noticed is that the VM boot up generally takes longer than my physical OS (up to 2x).

    One thing I'll have to try is a dual boot VM.

    If you have a SSD then the slow down will be very minor (in other words no big deal. . .
