Default Re: The Advantages and Disadvantages of Dual Booting Windows and Linux?

I suggest a bootable Linux distro like P.H.L.A.K at www.Phlak.org or Knoppix at www.Knoppix.net.

Red Hat 8 isn't as buggy.

Oh, but Yarrow is newer! Is it something I will care about or indeed notice when I'm trying to see what its like. I will not use it for a prolonged amount of time. If I do I'll download one more suited for what I shall do.

Sometimes new isn't the best.

Maybe not; but it technically should be. If I decide to keep it on Linux then I will download a better and more safe Linux - but until then I don't think I can be bothered.
