Starting today, I would like to cover Linux here at Winaero! There's no need to panic. It will not replace our regular Windows articles and we will not shift the focus from Windows to Linux manuals and tutorials. However, it will be a nice addition for everyone who wants to give Linux a try for the first time if they are not satisfied with Windows. We will show on our blog how to prepare your PC to install Linux in a dual boot configuration. Today's article is about how to partition the disk drive and optionally make it use a single partition.
