Software

There can be many methods getting Linux to run on a Windows box. I would always encourage to make the total switch to Linux but there can be good reasons to keep your Windows box intact. An employer may give you a laptop loaded with Windows to use for work. You may really enjoy PC gaming and all of the latest good games still require Windows. Maybe you need to perform data recovery for someone on their Windows PC that will not boot.

Fortunately there are many applications and methods that can allow one to use Linux on a Windows PC. This article will describe four common methods available for the Linux enthusiast which include Live Media, Emulators, Remote Login, and Dual Booting. There are also links with guides to help you get started. I have used most of these methods in the past and found them to be very useful.
