Hi alchimie, I assume that you installed the Linux version of Winpower? I am no expert, would suggest that you join one of the Ubuntu IRC rooms for help: https://community.ubuntu.com/contribute/support/irc/

Okay, what I really want isn't on another OS as far as I know either:

Hard drives have gotten very big. I'm not going to say "there's plenty of space," but you know what I mean--it's not like the old days.

So, what I'd like is a tagging system built directly into the file system itself--at least for data files. In other words, I have my file structure via folders or directories. I have the Type of the file built directly into the file itself: PDF or ODT or DOC or whatever.

Why can't I have tags?

Remember how cool it was when you realized that Gmail would tag instead of you being stuck with Yahoo's folders? I want *that* on a system-wide scale; or again, at least for data and/or user files. I click on my "Dog" tag or search by some little applet in my bottom panel: and suddenly I see all the pictures I tagged of my dog; and all the songs I tagged by Snoop Dogg. (Ah, there's the one I want: "Gin and Juice.") Ok, Snoop Dogg has two g's at the end, but you get the point. (And I couldn't resist saying "Dog" tag.)

I would really enjoy using Photo Plus and Page Plus once more and it should not be difficult because Wine almost runs Photo Plus but it looses some function.

I agree with this. There is nothing that comes close to PagePlus on Linux. Scribus is nowhere near. The last I checked, recent versions wouldn't even install on Wine, coming up with installer errors and doing nothing. Installing Microsoft Office in the same Wine Bottle fixes some of the functionality problems, when you can get it installed.

direct X libs

I'm guessing full directx stack so games and graphics products can be seamless.

Personally, I'd rather see open-source gaming stacks working on all platforms well. Though I do admit there are games I wish I could play and do sometimes go as far as contemplating buying Windows to do so.

And then ?

You install windows apps in the virtual windows that is installed in the Linux Virtualbox ?

Does the virtualbox go away, along the installed windows OS and installed windows apps, when the virtual box is exited?

Is there a way to save the windows install and the apps installed in the virtualbox in order to run the same configuration at a later time?

If the virtual windows and installed windows apps are all working properly, does this slow down the computer?

I run Ubuntu 16.04 on a dell XPS 410 with a core duo processor, and 4 Gbytes ram.

Thanks !

Not really, no. For a lot of people (OK, perhaps it's just me) things like games which use the graphics card are the Windows programs we would like to use and they won't run inside a virtual machine unless a separate graphics card is bought for that machine which kind of defeats the object.
Then there's the way files are shared between Windows and Linux and how the workflow works -- it's not particularly convenient to load a whole new OS in a virtual machine just to use one application then mess around moving files.
Virtual machines are great for things like running servers and testing new OS installs but as a day-to-day way yo use applications meant for one OS from another they're cludgy at best.

It is turned off. The next time you start it, it is there as before.

You turn it off and start it up as a normal computer.

That is on the low side. 8 GB would be better.

Think of a virtual machine as another laptop standing next to your normal computer. You can install, uninstall, put it to sleep, wake it up, turn it off and on, format your hard disk, configure your screen. The only difference is, it is not a real hardware laptop, but something which emulates your laptop's hardware. And shares the same processor resources.

There is no mixup between the processes, memory, disks between your host machine and your guest machine. Totally separate. The farthest you can go in sharing is to make a shared drive in one of your machines and access it like you access a drive over the network.

We already have that. WINE with Gallium Nine.

Virtualbox can share a drive from your host OS with Windows. It shows up as a mapped drive.

Other than a complete OS, there are virtual app creators. They convert just one app into a lightweight VM. These are some examples: http://carlcheo.com/portable-app-creators. It is not THE example I was looking for, but for the life of it I cannot remember the name. More research might be useful.
