I have recently set up a rebuilt PC with Ubuntu, a Linux operating system. I have no Microsoft software running on this machine.
I put about 20 hours into building a virtual machine to stage a WordPress development site using Vagrant and VirtualBox.
This environment attempt was preceded by previous 20 hours of building a Windows-based Apache MySQL PHP (WAMP) virtual machine to stage a WordPress development site.
So after a fairly diligent look at virtual boxes to maintain a WordPress site, The 40 hours mentioned above will be labelled “research” and set aside.
I will keep the Ubuntu machine and learn to expertly edit WordPress directly in Mozilla Firefox.
