This presentation describes the installation of Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 to dual boot with Windows 10 Home on an HP Spectre x360-13 laptop. Previously, I had been using Linux in a virtual machine on Windows. After the update, there was a very significant improvement in performance working in Linux without the Windows/VM overhead. It turned out to not be difficult and was certainly worth doing.

I found a lot of helpful information here:

Excellent tutorial

This was an excellent tutorial on how to get dual deployment working. If I ever need to do this or know someone that does, I will send them here.

Steve, thanks for the comment. There seems to be a perception that Windows 10 is harder to deal with than previous versions, and it really isn't. I hope the show helps someone get started on a useful project.
