Wine can be a bit picky on what it will run Colin.

I'm just trying MX-14. It looks quite good so far.

Ubuntu is more polished, but Zorin9 is far, far quicker....it feels snappier, even running as a VM. The Windows 7 look and feel is nice too.

I've got a few installed now, and playing with that:
Ubuntu
PepperMint5
LinuxMint17
PCLinuxOS
Zorin9

I'll give MX14 a crack too

Colin, I'd like to suggest you try CentOS. My absolute favorite Linux distro. Microsoft has built-in support for CentOS and OpenSUSE in Hyper-V (Windows 8 and later).

You are welcome. See this although I doubt you need any help with it: Hyper-V VM - Install CentOS Linux in Windows 10. Applies to Windows 8 Pro and 8.1 Pro as well.

Today I finally managed to confirm my internship for the end of this year! I'll be spending half a year in Brussels speaking French and doing fancy stuff as a Junior Management Consultant in one of the biggest companies out there! Really stoked about it, especially since I'll be working closely...
