First time VM installation
I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop. Originally there was just one OS on it - WinXP. I then installed GRUB and a native install of LinuxMint 18.2 MATE on a separate partition.
I’m looking to learn the ins and outs of Linux with the hope to become a Linux SysAdmin at some point.
So in addition to Mint, I would also like to become acquainted with CentOS and OpenSUSE. But I’d like to do that via VM (free if I can) which, at the moment, I don’t have installed on my machine.
I know of virtualbox.org and vmware.com, but I’m not sure what specific product to use from either of these companies. Please keep in mind that I’m a beginner. Your help is appreciated.
