Wondering if you could offer any advice.
At work I have a MacBook Pro, at home I have a Windows 8 Desktop. I would like to purchase a portable HDD that I can install a USB bootable version of Ubuntu on to replace OS X. If possible I would like to be able to use the portable HDD at home on my Windows 8 machine, but instead of booting into Ubuntu I would like to run it inside a Virtual Environment.
Is this possible, if so what Virtual software would be capable of this?
