Hey Bruno! Thats a great question!

I am running a virtual machine using Oracles VirtualBox. I use this as my sandbox for all of my dev work and sometimes even use virtual environments like venv and docker containers within this virtual machine!

It is somewhat similar to a virtual environment, however it differs because it is designed to function as a full virtualized operating system! You can install different Linux distros and even MacOS and use it as you would a regular computer.

If you want to check out what virtualbox is and how to use it I'll be making a post about it very soon!

With Win10 you can do in WSL2 whatever you are doing in Virtual Box I think

I like to keep my environments separated :)
