The main os will remain being Vista because it has a especial
relationship with the laptop manufacturer, it is essential to do some
work that is more complex on Ubuntu and is shared with my brother.

The virtual machine is for create a ubuntu install that will work like
the one I have now. The first step I am  doing is a clean install on
the vm but ubuntu has a problem with the size of the installer window
that is larger than the work space. :-( Then I decided to install
debian to then rebrand it with the ubuntu packages or try other
options if it becomes hard to do.
