Today we're going to run through how to run the Ubuntu OS through a Virtual Machine. This means you can run Ubuntu separately even if your desktop is windows based. The process can get a little complex however we're going to simplify it for you today. The first step in the process would be to download an ISO which resembles the same properties as a physical optical disk. These ISO's can typically be found on the internet and once downloaded need to be ran through your Virtual Machine of choice with the two most popular being either VMWare or Virtualbox. As mentioned this process can be difficult so to simplify the process you can use a pre-installed image of Ubuntu OS to save you both time and hassle. This pre-installed image is known as a virtual disk image and will have the extension .vdi if you're using Virtualbox or alternatively .vmdk if you're using VMWare.
