I'm planning to upgrade (tho my E8400 has been a workhorse for many years!).
I plan to move to a I5-9600, Gigabyte z390 AORUS, but I still have Win7 programs I need for work (VPN, term emulator, ect) that may not work with Vine.
I know Win7 can't be installed as the OS on a gen9 I5, but has anyone tried installing it as a virtual VMWare under Linux (such as Mint)?

Thanks for the reply, but it's not a question of which virtualization package works under linux, it's whether or not win7 will work properly when virtualized on a 9th gen I5.

I think VM's present a virtualized CPU for the guest. So since Virtual Box has a preset to set up Win 7 as a guest, then it must work. Takes 20 mins to find out.
