[TriEmbed] Windows on Mac or Linux

Speaking of Windows, you can get a free 90 days use of 32 bit Windows 
(7, 8.1, or 10) preinstalled in a virtual machine at the URL below. 
After 90 days it starts nagging you, but is still usable for another 
month or two, but eventually won't install updates: time to go get 
another one. From getting the Virtual Box flavor appliance file to 
having it running is five minutes tops if you're familiar with that VM 
(and there are cheat sheets easily found).
