I'm on a Windows 8.164 bit, 500 GB Samsung 840 Evo, 24 GB of RAM…

I've read in a few Linux posts at stack exchange and even watched a YouTube video that Nvidia has troubles with the Linux OS, or… Maybe it was vice versa.

I've spent all this time and a small fortune with this Windows OS. I really don't feel like messing with a dual-boot.

I would rather install a somewhat stable virtualization on top of Windows so I can run CentOS.

Two main reasons why I would want this:
so I can learn Linux
so I can communicate natively with my VPS that I just purchased

Everybody's always talking about Putty this, and putty that, here a putty, there a putty everywhere a putty putty… :-)

I like to do things the administrative hard way… :p

I've done a Google search on this, but… I'd like to get some feedback from people who have already done this on their ROG machine.

VMware seems to be a popular one, Hypervisor V is built in with Windows.

Just want to get some feedback on which virtualization software you went with and why.
Advantages and disadvantages alike.

Thank you in advance!
