In volunteering to monitor LQ questions, I'm looking at new questions that are incomplete or just bad questions.

These are my notes intended to submit to Jeremy once this monitor period has progress sufficiently.

Update 7/27/15 - Stopping this activity. Conclusions + follow-up (some shown within) Due to my time requirements this week I likely will not have sufficient time to keep pace as I did a few days last week. Not all the questions were ideal for the canned response....

Think of the 'Price is Right' 'spinwheel' where the goal is to get as close to $1.00 without going over.

Seek Intel running SolidWorks through Virtualbox through ISO of Win7 on Ubuntu1404

Posted 07-20-2015 at 05:51 PM by Peter T

I am wondering if anyone here has tried

SolidWorks on the VirtualBox / Windows 'Frankensteined
partition', within said Ubuntu 1404 platform, as SolidWorks is
incompatible with Linux based systems. [or so I'm told]
[Long way around the barn ?...Do I need my head examined ?]

Or,,,, would I be better...
