Agreed totally. I personally will upgrade to 10 soon as microsoft pushes it down... Still waiting for the update. That's for my personal laptop, which is just a tinkering toy really. I wouldn't let win10 within 10 miles of my workplace, though. On counterpoint to linuxmint... Yeah right, no way I can do my work on that unless I'm running an emulator, and then what's the point.

I doubt you mean an emulator. I'm not sure what you mean. A VM? Can you run Windows 7 in a VM on Linux? If so, I'd like to know how. Do you mean windows APIs on Linux, like in WINE? I always found that a hassle to setup, but often worth it.

I'm currently on 7. I'm assuming I'll have to go back to Linux. I like Linux, but I don't like the hassle when it comes to games and such, especially the big budget games that I actually want to play, and assume that "all dem lin-ucks ppl be hackars" or whatever. I think that's what you mean? Because that's my situation. But I'm not aware of any emulators you would need.

Try running solidworks on a VM or WINE.....

Virtual box on Linux? Maybe I'm on crack.
