    It’s “real”… but arguably not “Epic” (as described on the tin)

    Ubuntu, or LinuxMint base + Virtualbox guest additions + humongous assortment of pre-installed applications
    (see: https://sourceforge.net/projects/robolinux/files or https://robolinux.org/downloads/v8.8.1-details.html)

    …and its “secret sauce”
    ( see https://robolinux.org/c-drive-to-vm/ )
    coaches folks to use Microsoft sysinternals “disk2vhd” freeware utility to create a virtualbox image from an installed Windows system.

    Seriously, as a time-saver, that guidance is well worth the US19.95 (previously 39.95, IIRC)
    (No, I’m not a customer. Curiosity led me to retrieve his scripts — residing on an unprotected server — and audit them.)

    I, for one, would not have the patience to “load a windoze installation CD/DVD and install” into Virtualbox.
    Besides, nowadays even if someone did have the patience for that, and wished to migrate an XP or Win7 system… updates / ServicePacks may be unavailable.
