How hard is it to set up a "VM" and what does that even mean/stand for?
VM stands for virtual machine, similar to dual boot os. You can run the 32 bit version of an OS virtually. 64 bit machines are faster, however, incompatible with the software needed to code. I was considering buying a used laptop off ebay for these purposes.
