Sample text

Also, since all of the utilities use the same configuration files and format, information entered, deleted, or modified by one method will be immediately visible to all of the utilities. However, there are often reasons to modify or add repositories. You may want to add repositories for software that isn't available directly from Debian, or modify the URL to use a different, better performing server, or different access method. Also, not all mirrors support both methods, so if you change servers, you may need to change the access method as well.

If the system has multiple disks and may require resizing or live migration in the event of hardware changes, then LVM should be considered. If the administrator wants multiple partitions but isn't certain of the sizes required and doesn't want to use LVM, the defaults for the multipartition setup are a good starting point. If implemented via the Linux kernel, an unencrypted/boot partition is required. There are two main options, disk encryption and directory encryption. Know the laws in your jurisdiction!

So, if you are planning to use a dual or multiboot layout that includes Windows, and you don't have the time, patience, and determination to actually try all the alternatives, the answer comes down to the following practical considerations: Can you live without a major version upgrade to Internet Explorer? Can you run Windows as a VM instead of as part of a dual or multiboot system?
