| Of course I must admit I have never installed multiple linuxes on
| one system. I can't see any use.
Here's one of my uses.
I normally upgrade to a new version of a Linux distro by doing a clean
install, with the new and old installations sharing /home and swap but
each having their own /. This is what I've done for roughly a decade.
At least these days, the cost of the disk space for / is tiny.
You, on the other hand, trust apt-get to do version upgrades.
