I have a new Dell XPS 13 (SSD) with Windows 10 preinstall, already installed. I want to install Linux so to maintain both operating systems or only Linux.

Read the doco is a good first step. All the major distros (and even the minor ones) publish download and install guides. Most will use grub as a boot laoder and will handle dual booting transparently.
I prefer to use the Win10 disk manager to reduce its space usage - leave the free space unallocated, and let the Linux installer allocate as it wishes. Less grief all round.

Might be just as easy and practical to use a free virtual machine to run linux and other OS's from within windows. ??
