That's how I first started out on virtual machine, but problem with virtual is it doesn't show you that there is no Wi-Fi or Bluetooth in actual live build. That too I learned the hard way after installing.Virtualbox/Gnome Boxes is your best friend at this point in your new Linux Journey. That way you can check out different Distros without having to install them on your computer or boot to them from a usb drive. I wish I'd have known about/used them when I first started out. It would have saved me a lot of install time. Anyway, welcome.
