Can't imagine why anyone would mess with dual boot these days with
something like Virtualbox available.

If you find Virualbox works well for you, then fine. Others may have good reasons to not use it. Same with people using the various Linux distros and different desktop environments.

I do not run a Virtualbox type of system on any system since the early 2000's. I do not want to have any speed reductions for my systems. With Windows, I have put so much security software on my Windows systems and Windows partitions on the dual boot systems. That take a lot of processor power to keep my Windows systems free of any "nasties" that are out there to infect and/or destroy my systems.

I am the guy people come to when they do not keep their systems safe from infections and need to have them cleaned up so they can us them again. Many times I need to remove their drive[s] and run them on my systems as an external drives, since their systems are too infected to reinstall and run the cleaning security packages.
