    The advantage of dual boot is if something happens to one OS you are still alive (this happened to me recently) and can do something about it without reinstalling the OS.
    You can also stick a bootable OS onto a USB drive, if you don't want to dedicate the (meager) drive space that the second OS takes up.

    I use a bootable USB if I ever have to work on anybody else's computers- Set up so the internal drives aren't really used, so all of my data comes with me when I leave.
