Installing Other Distros in Ubuntu

  • Installing other Distros (After the install log out, choose from the drop down list log back in)

    Start with opening your favorite Terminal Windows I use "Terminator Terminal".
    Then just enter the command you want for the distro or distros you want to use. You can install all of them try them and keep all or just the one you like the most.
