You can always set up a virtual machine via VirtualBox[1] or VMWare to
test new software.  :)  You get to play with new things (at a cost of
performance) without messing up your main computer.  IIRC VirtualBox
is already in the ubuntu repos.

This has been an incredibly interesting and insightful discussion so far, thanks for that!
Does that mean I can run Windows using VirtualBox inside Xubuntu to use the two or three applications I rely on that don't work on Linux as opposed to the dual boot approach? Would that be a better way of doing things?
