- How to install Ubuntu on VirtualBox? 3 answers
I am new to the Ubuntu OS. I was wondering if I could use this operating system through an Oracle VirtualBox virtual machine on Windows as I do not want to switch my computer's OS. It is a Hewlett-Packard PC running Windows 8.1. If this is already in an FAQ somewhere, I'm sorry as I have not looked because I'm lazy. I have heard great things about this OS and I want to try it for myself. It does not mean that I'm going to be switching for good, I just want to try it on a virtual machine. Thank you in advance. P.S. this is for personal use and I'm using the free version.
