Hello, everyone and happy 4th.
I'd like to experiment with Ubuntu, and would like your opinion about how to install it. I'd prefer not to install it as the sole OS on my computer, and I'm not ready to set up a dual boot system, because I need access to Windows for work. I'd need to multi-task.
So, that leaves me with two options: Install Ubuntu on a virtual machine (I am familiar with Virtual Box, and am using it to test Windows 10), or run it live from a USB stick.
Which would you consider the better of these two alternatives? I know the virtual machine will probably be slow, but I can multi-task while experimenting with Ubuntu.
Can I install software on my computer with Ubuntu just running live? Will WINE work on Ubuntu if I run it just live?
Thank you for your feedback! Jack D.
