Why Multiboot?

In today's world of advanced operating systems and low hard disk prices, it certainly is not uncommon for many users to want to experiment with different computing flavors. The world of consumer computing is rife with many different options. With the proliferation of the Internet and its accompanying high-bandwidth needs, whole operating systems are available for free download via many commercial distributors'FTP sites.

Along with just plain curiosity and experimentation, many users use two or more operating systems because of application requirements. Many users create multiboot systems to run specific applications or games in the most optimal environment possible. Windows 98 is far more suited, for example, to games, digital audio, and many other multimedia-type applications. A developer's need changes to Windows NT or Windows 2000 because these operating systems provide the most robust development environment on the Microsoft platform. I need all these operating systems functioning on a single computer to meet my daily application needs. Other than buying multiple computers, multibooting is the most sensible solution.
