Rather then bog down another, unrelated, thread on this I thought I’d
start a new one.
I’ve seen the suggestion more than a few times that people, often newbies,
use WUBI or a VM to try Linux out. While WUBI is a quite good system for
testing a distro without the problems of partitioning, which often
frightens people and can be occasionally problematic. I don’t believe
VMs are a very good suggestion at all. Apart from the problem of setting
one up, you won’t know where problems lie. Is it with Windows, Linix or
the VM? Nor is it a good test of the hardware for Linux.
