I recently installed Ubuntu, a popular Linux operating system to my laptop computer. I like it pretty much. It is easy to use, and I just need some time to adjust to it. I think there is much more I need to learn from linux. Not like my friend, who is master of it. I had some softwares which are only compatible with Microsoft Windows. I just wonder, would virtual box help bridge the difference on this matter? Some people suggested me Virtual box and help install Windows compatible software to Linux. Is it a truth?

I think VirtualBox is a great softwre to bridge the difference in Windows and Linux software. Virtualbox is also can be run with Seamless Mode. All the windows application are run in the linux desktop. For me myself, I used virtualbox for try a new OS or developing a linux distro.

well.. I have heard about virtual box but never tried with my system.. The software I am using is VM Workstation. it's pretty good software to install linux and windows on the same machine. you can also configure virtual system(linux) with your physical network or you can connect that virtual OS with your Windows too..

i have used a virtual machine to communicate windows and linux. but it's for my study to practice how to make a network between them. i usually use vmware. it's very powerfull for me

yes, you can use Virtual Box to learn any Operating System even though in this software not real (just emulation).
