I'd love to do that instead but:
-for some reason, my computer starts up with a blank screen (monitor (monitor on laptop) works but the screen goes blank until computer is rebooted or if correct code is typed) and getting rid of the leftovers was a pain in the butt when Ubuntu wouldn't install correctly.
-I like being able to switch between both OSes when I'd like and have an easy way of transferring information between the two with the click of a button or a few keystrokes
-Ubuntu runs very fast on 1GB of shared RAM which is fine for me and my computer has 4GB so it still runs just as fast. I like the virtualization too because I can change up my hard drive size much more easily.
-I have tried Ubuntu installed in a dual boot on other computers and these were the pluses that I saw between the two.
But thanks for the suggestion. If I could find a fix for the monitor going out, I probably would've went ahead and installed it alongside but this works just as well. I'm much more careful with Windows than before and try to backup the system as often as I can as well as take other precautions.
Yeah, choosing Mac was a bit weird too. After reading some posts, it seems like it took them a little longer to create the Mac version though. I would think it'd be easier to make the application for Linux based systems than Macintosh but I'm not a developer so I wouldn't really know.
