After its Ubuntu machines appeared to be selling well, Dell is considering releasing dual-boot and virtualisation machines that can run several operating systems at once.

According to the Reuters, Dell is developing consumer PCs that can run multiple versions of Microsoft's Windows and Linux software at the same time.
