I bought Cindy a 3ds for Christmas a couple years ago. She barely if at all played it until the other day. I bought her sonic and animal crossing. She told me animal crossing was too hard and she never touched it. Now I come home from work yesterday and shes playing animal crossing non-stop since then. She said shes willing to try PC games next. Perfect.

I don't want to build a PC for her just yet. So heres the question

What program can I use to turn my pc into two pcs. I was eyeballing VirtualBox cause its free.

Has anyone had any experience with virtual pcs.

Animal crossing too hard? rofl

Anything needing real graphics will run like shit in a VM unless you setup gpu passthrough for it. That would need a linux host & spare gpu as far as I know. Might be able to run some shitty older pc games in a standard virtualbox VM though. (last I used it, virtualbox only had access to 128MB of video memory)

If you wanna virtualize, I recommend starting from scratch with a Linux host and two Windows VMs: One for you and one for Cindy. LinusTechTips has done a few videos on setting up unRAID for such a purpose:

You definitely need another video card though, like allagor said.

Those games are all old, so they might run alright in virtualbox. It's worth a shot before trying anything else, since it's free & easy to setup.

What's wrong with using Linux for your host? It's not like you'll be using it yourself, you'll be on a Windows 10 VM so you won't even notice a difference. But anyway, you could use Windows as your host if you use something like Hyper-V I suppose. But you still need two GPUs (integrated or otherwise) and two Windows VMs running under it, so that you each can get a set of input devices and video outs.

I'm not too familiar with VirtualBox but will he be able to use it as two separate, simultaneous PCs? I would imagine he'd need to run both OS's in a VM, no?

Not sure if you got this sorted out or not -- but I've used virtual box plenty of times and would recommend installing it on your windows machine. Then just have a single Windows VM just for Cindy.

If you need help setting it up, I can help.
