Hey guys, I've decided to make the change to Linux, but I need your help. I have an idea of what I want to do: Because Linux is a much more secure OS I want to use it as my "main" OS, the one I use to go on the internet, chat, do homework, listen to music, etc., but not to play games-I will be using my Windows XP system for that. However the question is, how can I keep my Windows XP and have a different partition in my HD with Ubuntu in it? What program/s will I need to use? What else do I need to know before making that change? Has anyone else tried doing this with this Linux distro before?
Any type of positive and relevant feedback is greatly appreciated, thanks :)
