That obviously is a good suggestion...not sure it is helpful though ;)

Using a special partition for linux or running it inside a VM basically
is the same advice and only differs in "implementation details".

I won't go into discussing advantages and disadvantages as that is WOT.
The conclusion would be:
Both are valid and most likely sound solutions and without further
knowledge of the OP's skills and preferences I would not endorse one over
the other.

So I rephrase my original advice:
Install linux in a VM or on a seperate partion and check out...(repeat
what had already been said).
