So I really like Linux, but I also have to use windows and can't do a dual boot because of space issues. Guess I'm stuck with bash for windows...

    What about Wine for your Windows needs? Or as suggested in previous post, buy a flash drive and store your Windows VM there.

    Get a USB3.0 drive that's low profile, I got one that's 64GB and reads 120MB/s for $30. The writes are only like 30MB/s, but not bad. Install a lighter distribution on one like that and you're golden. Just backup often because the nand can degrade pretty quickly on cheap ones. Turn off all logging to help with that, though, or cache logs and only let them write in chunks, you can typically control the buffers somewhere in the logging daemon configs.

    @Zaab1t read the rant before commenting.

    BTW I'm a windows insider and I got the anniversary update months ago

    1. Get and install HDD.
    2. Install linux on it
    3. Profit --> GRUB will let you boot any of them you want to.

    Why does no one here consider using VirtualBox for this sort of thing? It's always dual boot, but why?

    @drRoss i do use virtual box, but it's considerably slower than it would be with a dial boot
