Today, June 27. 2016, Arjen Balfoort has announced the release and general availability of the June's updated ISO images for his SolydX and SolydK GNU/Linux distributions.
Finally, there is an Extended Partition for all the other Linux distributions I am trying out on this little netbook. The actual number installed varies depending on what I am doing. There are currently six different distributions installed there, and there is enough free space at the end to add one or two more if I want.
The important thing here is that the Linux grub bootloader will boot either a Primary or a Logical Partition without requiring any unusual manipulation of boot files or partitions.
Ok, that's enough - probably more than enough. I hope that what all of this showed was that installing Linux doesn't require complicated disk partitioning, it can actually be quite simple.
