Most recent systems have HDs so large that it's actually kind of dumb not to
multiboot instead of replacing a whole OS. When you install another in
addition instead of replacing, you have the opportunity to evaluate without
losing anything you had to start with except a small fraction of HD space.
When you add an OS, and don't like it, you can just not use it, and continue
to use what you had, and later use the space for whichever you don't prefer
for the next trial that comes along. An added bonus is that if you corrupt
one OS on a multiboot system, it can be quite easy to fix by booting another,
instead of having to find and boot some removable media's rescue system.

I have over 30 working computers, of which most have at least 3 installed
OSes, several 8 or more, and a few with more than a dozen each. About
