Thanks, very useful information, i intend to try out debian and arch through virtual machines in the not too distant future.
i really like Debian. Its a rock solid distro, i love all debian distros for that. I was taking a cyber security course and noticed that the instructor was running Debian on his laptop so i thought id give it a go! lol Its a great distro will not let you down

i found install was straight forward on my virtual machine but when i went t put it on my macbook, i would get a weird error something was missing - i probably could of easily sorted it with a bit of research but as im impatient i then went and installed Arcolinux and have been having fun with that distro, its a really user friendly Arch based distro that uses a Gui installer called calamares, you can pick your desktop and alsorts its great

yeah i just got a wierd error as well, there are instructions for fixing it on ubuntu. It's apparently a virtual box issue which is with my limited machine code knowledge un-fixable:

interesting! i cant remember the exact error mine threw but it was possibly missing kernel modules or something of that nature. Because i was installing on real hardware i didnt want the heeadache so i retreated to another distro lol
