Default Robolinux anyone?

Think i'll give Robolinux Cinnamon a try today.
Latest version seems quite promising:
https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/roboli...ows-switchers/

Debating to install Win 7 or 10 in VM there.
License for Win 7 might require me calling into M$ headquarters (expired usage of registration keys) while 10 can simply be registered with Outlook email.



Btw, even after email address change, i've not been recently getting email notifications for posts here (again).

I'd take a look at the comments under that article before making a final decision.

This lot were first intent on charging for their Windows installers and of course that could never work and didn't. Since they've made all sorts of outlandish claims and constructed a website totally designed to amaze and confuse.

Oracle VM was out of date (not a good sign for an updated distro) and could only handle 32bit Windows versions (must enter your own valid license) and i want 64bit so, not a good thing.

Then the OS never wanted to shutdown...

Bad first impressions, so, back to Win 10 (with an eye on Ubuntu MATE).
