I just read a post about using a VM for cracked software. It strongly urged us to use one of these VMs. Is this necessary and if so how do I set one up? I tried to install Easy PHP some time ago but, couldn't figure it out. Is Easy PHP even what I should have been using? Do you put the VM on a seperate partition? Or is a seperate drive (external) better. So, is it wise to use a VM? What software is best for a noob to use? Also, where do I put it. Thank you for your time and consideration.
