Nerd Corner Update: Dual Booting #Windows #Linux

I have been running Microsoft Windows exclusively on my home desktop computer since I got it several months ago. Windows has served me well at work and at home but I got the itch to dual boot operating systems on my computer so I installed Ubuntu Budgie which is an open source Linux based operating system that works a lot like Windows and looks a little like the Mac OSX.

This Dell Optiplex 7010 is the same computer I have at home and on my desk at work.

Both OS’s have their strong points but like Hannah Montana I wanted the best of both worlds. Linux is much more customizable because it is open source. Windows has a rich application platform and I need it for home productivity and there are things that it runs that Ubuntu Budgie does not.

In a way it allows me to have two somewhat different computers in one. This is going to give me flexibility and a little bit of fun. As a matter of fact I am writing this post on Ubuntu Budgie.
