Dual boot with Linux. An easy way to try it.
Creates a virtual drive or partition, whatever....
To install your Linux Distro.
Which is available through the Wubi program.
Though not all the Linux os are on there.
I saw kubuntu, unbuntu and another, I forget.
They may have added more since I tried it.

It's as easy as going into control panel and uninstalling the program 'Wubi' and deleting the grub in the boot drive. If you want to unload it.

Needs at least 7gb to run well, better to have 10 or more. I ran Ubuntu with it and it worked ok. Though getting the partition space back was a chore. Fortunately I had it on a separate hard drive. I recommend a separate hard drive for this.
