My computing experience dates back to the eighties when DOS was brand new and home machines ran on CP/M. From building my own systems I have some understanding in hardware and other complicated things but it is my believe that an OS has to be easy to use and to configure. That's why I use Ubuntu.

This is an error not related to Ubuntu, hence off topic here. The error indicates a broken Virtual Box instance in Windows. Try rebooting Windows or re-installing Virtual Box there.

comment Best German expression for being metaphorically "rusty"
We can't leave the comments here, because they are off topic on this question - however the discussion is valuable and should not go away. Why not make it a new question with answers? We don't have that topic yet. Wink mit dem Zaunpfahl an @Phe0nix - du brauchst Reputationspunkte ;)

comment Best German expression for being metaphorically "rusty"
It appears that this discussion is becoming entirely off topic to the question above. Consider making this a new Question/Answer thread on the usage of außer or aus der.

comment Schlussformel für Beschwerdebrief?
nein, @jdog, dein Eindruck trügt nicht. Es ist so altbacken, dass es kaum noch Leute gibt, die "Hochachtungsvoll" schreiben. Die "freundlichen Grüße" sind auch im Beschwerdebrief üblich.

comment What is the difference between "das Ergebnis" and "die Folge"?
Nice catch to point to the common etymology with 'to follow'. The Old English folgian only later became follow - in case you want to [edit] this in to your answer here's a link: dwds.de/?qu=Folge

comment Historically correct usage of "Britannien" and "Großbritannien"
At least the German term Großbritannien is widely used. This includes even newspapers or official sources. I believe it is only slightly incorrect but definitely not wrong ;)

comment In what context do we write "Guten Tag" rather than "Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren"?
Shouldn't this be a new question rather than an answer? In case you ask, please make sure it is different enough to this question. :)
