  • Tests on different installation

    Hi,
    I'm using Linux (Ubuntu) on my laptop, but for work I will receive a new laptop with Windows.
    I'd like to run Linux as an alternative, but I don't want (probably I can't) make a partition on the hard drive.
    I was thinking to run Linux within Windows using a virtualizzation software or install Linux in a USB flash drive.
    Do you have benchmark of these two configurations?
    Which one do you suggest?
    I'd like to have full hardware access, but I don't like to reboot my laptop each time.

    Thanks!

    Nobody will be able to suggest anything, as for now, it is still impossible have full hardware support without rebooting your computer.

      what you want is impossible. What are the specs of the laptop? Then you can work out what performance will be like in the virtual linux. Virtualisation using a recent cpu with VT or the amd virtualisation extension has little overhead, but rebooting and using a flash drive for example (although not really recommended because of the problem with multiple writes on nand memory) will be faster and provide you with a fuller experience of linux. Look at specialised USB distro's with JFFS2 partion systems.
