Can I install Ubuntu11.10 and Linux mint 12 together?


I installed Ubuntu 11.10 recently and it is working OK. However I like to try Linux Mint 12 to see if it is better. Is it possible to install both of them on the same machine?

Hello Raman,

Yes exactly you can install Ubuntu and Linux Mint both.

Either you can install through dual booting or you can install another OS using Virtual Machine if you don't want to use new partition.

Yes there is always dual boot and it is a lot easier when both of them are linux. Personally I think both the distros are more or less the same though it looks like mint is better than ubuntu in more than one ways. If you have enjoyed Ubuntu I belive Mint will please you a lot more but then again this is my opinion.
