    I want to set up windows in VirtualBox just so I'll be ready for them. And then I'm gonna' do everything they tell me to do just to see what happens.

    I have had Windows VM's in VirtualBox for a long time. I have a snapshot of them so I can restore them easily.

    However, I have never gotten one of those calls.
    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.

    See post #102.

    You don't want to do everything they say — stop when they ask for payment! But you can get them even at that point: See posts 137, 138 and 146.

    In my day, we had outdoors in which to run, play, and socialise. Now we have computers to do those.
