The most practical is dual boot but make sure you always backup your data before risk on installing OS that in rare case may cause storage partition corrupted.

reFind is a better boot manager you could use, download binaries from SourceForge.

Doing benchmark on Linux tend to give accurate results and has plenty of tutorials you can find on the web. It’s good to explore and you can do anything you want on Linux including develop software with Go language for a self contained binaries. Think how you can build something that works on cross-platforms is interesting but I would target web development to be a better choice.

Thanks for the advice!! Clearly a dual-boot seems to be the best option. I'll take a look at reFind :)
