I teach people how to fix hardware and software. I need a variity of OS's to verify operation of various components. I'm still learning Linux, I expect that will go on for some time yet. I still have a few items I can't get working, like my flat bed scanner under Linux. It works under W98SE. No dought If I could only have one, it would be Linux.

Seriously, there are as many reasonf for people dual-booting as there are people dual-booting (in other words: everyone has their own reason ). I used to boot into Windows occasionally just to make sure that I hadn't actually removed it yet... until one fateful day where I did remove it by accident and didn't even notice for about a week! Hehe!
