Should I install linux on my windows 10 machine
I am currently in the Git basics course of the PHP track and am thinking should I install linux (ubuntu) on my machine (windows 10). On the previous course (command prompt) I simply used the console provided but am now thinking maybe having linux installed would be a good idea.

Hi Mayur Pande ,
You can use windows / linux to work on with the Git course on PHP. You can work on any platform that you feel comfortable. If you have not used linux before, it is a nice idea to start now. :)
Some virtual machine applicatins like VMWARE may be good if you don't wan't to install linux directly on your physical machine now.

You can install linux in a virtualbox, which is what I did. I just used the Oracle Virtualbox software to install Linux inside of that.
It allowed me to retain my office, and other software on my work computer, but still give myself a Linux based development environment.
