Dual Boot Your PC With Ubuntu!

Does it annoy you when you want to check something, but Windows boots too slow?  If yes, then you should dual boot your PC with Ubuntu.  Ubuntu is an open-source operating system, meaning that it is free.  It is a distribution of Linux.  You can run it alongside Windows.  You might be wondering, “What’s the advantage of this?”  Well, first thing’s first.  This boots up, I have to say 5x faster than Windows.  This is great if you need to check your email before heading out somewhere.  Secondly, the installation is quick, taking less than 10 minutes on a laptop with 2GB RAM.  Also, the OS is not targeted as much as Windows.  Finally, this OS comes packed with the newest version of Firefox and has an IM client ready at hand.  There is one disadvantage, though.  You can’t access your Windows hard drive, unless you do a clean install of both Windows and Ubuntu and create two partitions, which could take a long time to do.  If you store your data on an external drive, then this doesn’t really affect you.  To get started, go to http://www.ubuntu.com/ and download Ubuntu, burn it on a CD or use an image reader, preferably Daemon Tools Lite, and boot it in Windows (not BIOS)
