    Your best bet is to try to dual-boot if you're more interested in linux than just running things in a VM. There's a bunch of good tools which will allow you to do things like media creation and run the office suite but I've personally not found one single solution that is enough besides dual booting or using something like For office online there are limitations of office (max # rows in excel, size, ect).

  • How to mount NTFS drives to a Win10 VM on virt-manager?
    Hello. So I have an NTFS drive on my HDD, and I want to mount this on a Win10 VM. The thing is, my drive has been behaving weirdly under NTFS-3G, and I want to perform some checks on it properly with the Win10 VM. I already have a VM that I use for winapps, so I am already kinda halfway there. The VM that I setup is using virt-manager/KVM/QEMU/libvirt or whatever it is called. Is there a way for me to do this?
