Hello my problem is the following : i want to get to use Ubuntu but yet i need Windows for my studies (for like Visual Studio and other stuff does work only under Windows ) so i was thinking of making Ubuntu my primary OS and then create a virtual machine with oracle Virtualbox .. i really could use some advice on that .. virtual machine or two OS at the same time .. Note : i tried the both OS at the same time but I had problems with permissions ..when I can read/write on Windows, Ubuntu doesnt have even read permissions and vice versa ..
I will suggest there are five stages of using both Ubuntu and Windows. Here is the list of the five stages in chronological order from the first stage to the last stage. As a new Ubuntu user you are still at stage 1 in the list.
New Ubuntu user runs Windows in a virtual machine so that he can pop back into Windows any time it's necessary. Oracle VirtualBox is a good choice for the virtual machine application.
Ubuntu user with more experience uses Windows less frequently and wants more RAM to be available in Windows, so he dual boots Ubuntu alongside Windows.
Experienced Ubuntu user learns that there are many alternatives to the applications that he used in Windows including running the same Windows applications in Ubuntu using Wine, but he saves his dual boot Windows OS for when he needs to run applications that can't be replaced or won't run in Ubuntu using Wine.
The user doesn't use Windows much anymore, so he removes Windows and installs it on another computer if possible.
User rarely boots the computer that has Windows on it, and the computer sits unused gathering dust.
