Dual OS question
Hello everybody ! I'm a digital artist, which means that I need to constatly search for google hi-res images of textures , photos etc. The problem is that I'm on windows and after a while my PC gets slow, plus I'm affraid of catching viruses. I was wondering if is it a good idea to install some form of Linux on a Windows PC. And use linux to image search , then transfer the images i saved to my working windows PC via USB ? The second question is can you recommend me linux version which would be suitable for this task. Thanks !
