Fancy having a unix system to fiddle about with but dont want to mess about burning cd’s and the like ?
Then have a go with this guide
It goes through setting up a complete virtual machine using Oracles Virtual box and getting it running a copy of Ubuntu.
Took me about 15 minutes plus downloading to get it running on a laptop.
Oddly firefox in the virtual seems more responsive than running native on the same laptop
Probably because its not cluttered with cookies and nonsense yet.
