P.S. I forgot to ask you, what VM software do you use/recommend if I want to play around with Linux within Windows 10? Thanks
I use VirtualBox. Daily.
I almost always have a Linux VM running. Usually to check out potentially sketchy websites. Like the one you linked...
And also for my dev functions. A Server2012 and a couple of Win 7 and Win 10 clients, in their own little network.
Thanks for the VM recommendation
VM is new to me. So how does VM help when opening up potentially unsafe files etc? Does it sandbox them or something?
By the way, was the youronlinechoices.com website legitimate/safe?
A VM is its own OS and PC. Linux, in this case.
Being Linux, won't get affected by normal Windows issues.
And being in a VM, won't (mostly) affect the host OS. Win 10 Pro, in this case.
If, for whatever reason, that VM were to become completely corrupted...a recovery from an earlier snapshot is minutes away.
That site seemed to be "OK'. Not that it really does a lot of useful stuff for the normal person.
