Hi Donald. There's no need to dual boot. At the login screen (gdm/kdm), you
can select the desktop you want, kde,gome,xfce, etc. It depends on what you
install. If you start installing Kubuntu, and want to install Ubuntu (
really the same, just the desktop is different), just use your favorite apt
tool and do -> sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop , that will install the
basic desktop for that environment. And on the login screen select Gnome
instead of Kde if you want to see the gnome desktop. The same applies to
Xfce ( sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop ).
