What's a VM?

OK. The question admittedly is too basic. The real question though is only one level up as I'm void of info on this stuff.

Skim-read I can run win7 with Linux inside a VM so that i can have 2 OSs' & effortlessly jump between them without the pain of rebooting each time??? Yes / no?

Disclaimer: I really do have no fore-knowledge on VMs

Yes, you swap seamlessly between different OS...depending on the OS.

Try VMWare Player 8 - its free. Recommend trying LinuxMint 17.1 or Ubuntu with it.
