Hi I would love to get an opinion from experts on the best way to go.
The case is as followed: For my new software engineering internship, I need a Ubuntu env to program in because they all work with ubuntu.
Now I have a half-year-old Dell XPS 7590 and I saw the steps required to enable dual boot (from raid on to ahci etc, i see that reversing that is a lot more difficult). Now the main problem is that I might not continue to use ubuntu after my internship.
My questions are:
- What is the better option, installing ubuntu on a external SSD (Samsung T5) or on the internal SSD?
This way my win 10 system doesn't get affected at all but still does it throttle the performance?
- If I dual boot my XPS and split the internal ssd does that affect my data on windows?
I just never worked with ubuntu before or dual booting and I just don't want to make the wrong choice of either using the external SSD which may cause performance issues. Or split the internal SSD which may be hard to reverse without losing data.
