I'm thinking about installing Ubuntu ( dual boot ) as I might like it but I'm not sure whether I should choose to install alongside Windows 8 or something else.
I do have 100 GB unallocated already for Ubuntu on my
D:/ drive so I'm good to go.
I've seen people configure their partitions specially ( they created
swap and then used the remaining unallocated to install Ubuntu ). Do I need to do this? Or will the installer handle it for me.
