What advantages would this have over doing a dual boot?

It's nice to setup a quick dev environment. No reboot required to switch between the OSes. However, I'm having that nagging feeling that mehimu is just trying to do SEO.

I have followed all the steps without making any mistakes. This is really very useful for me. I have recently observed my laptop Keyboard is creating some issues after installing this. Is there any connection with it?
On the off chance that you ever need to cripple your PC console in Windows 10, you can do as such from the gadget administrator. In any case, extra advances are required to keep it off after a reboot. Windows 10 Home clients can likewise for all time impair the workstation's console by refreshing the gadget with a driver from another equipment producer.
