What is VM? Especially the abbreviation of two letters V and M can mean anything... Plus your question is very open (knowledge to share?), piggybacking all the work towards the ones who are willing to answer... The difference between your generation and the oldies... Oops agism..
So, since it might be Virtual Machines... I am gonna butt in. Virtual Machines can be used to emulate a computer inside another operating system. For example, you wanna run a server from a windows client machine, you fire up a VM inside a windows mahcine and install the server in the VM...
You wanna to try Linux inside windows? You fire up a VM and install Linux inside that VM which is installed on the windows machine. It is basically like a computer running withing a computer.
One of the common drawbacks of VMs would be its tendency of declined performance depending on resources given to them by the host computer. You can define how much RAM, bandwidth and all that is allocated to the VM running within the operating system of the host machine.
Anyway, one of the free and quite fucntional VMs would be virtualbox. Nice one to start... Free and open source. Download ans install and mess away...
ok, well, I normally connect wifi but I am required to bridge inorder to get the VM to be registered with my school. I think I got it, but every time I start the VM it gives me an error about not being able to start the VM since it can't read properly... Currently, when it does come up, it gets really slow but sort of works...
I'll get back to this thread after I try some things tonight...
Interested in listening to guitar playing and a good conversation, look for me on TS.

The only reason you would need to bridge is if you run something on your host OS to connect like a VPN client.... or if your host OS is registered with the IP or group/domain to the school. Otherwise you "should" be able to connect from the guest OS directly to your school.
