I think you are right! I read that I could run both if it was partitioned. Or, run Linux from a USB?
Of course, I am clueless and would take too long to learn. But....
My plan is to find someone local who is comfortable with both and get them to teach me. I need a south west Wales geek! There must be someone nearby. I will ask our grannies group.
@davidoclubb @anniemo71 If you have a spare USB drive you could try this https://ubuntu.com/tutorials/try-ubuntu-before-you-install . Unfortunately I'm not local to you so can't teach you person, but I'm sure there's a bunch of us on here that can help out with at least the 'try before you install' bit. 😊
Partitioning isn't too awful, though it depends how comfortable/familiar you are with slightly more low-level computer fiddling!
But it's nice to have someone to hold your hand while you do it - stepping into the unknown is hard! Best way is probably to take a totally old, slow laptop/computer that's not being used and install linux, wiping out what was there previously. That way you don't feel like you're risking anything significant
