No need to partition your Hard Drive, or reformat parts of it to test out the latest version of Linux. With VirtualBox you can manage Virtual Systems, and test them without having to format your computer, leave your main operating system, or worry about flaws in the current OS release. VirtualBox is free to use, and really simple to navigate and learn. David shows you a quick walk through on how to get Ubuntu running in VirtualBox.
In this tutorial, David will walk you through FileZilla. FileZilla is a free to use, open source FTP Client. It is an easy to use, well updated client. FileZilla supports multiple methods to communicate to your hosting using FTP and SFTP. It even allows TSL over FTP for more secure transfers than plain text FTP. FileZilla allows you to store multiple hosts / servers so you can easily connect to them at a later date without having to remember all of the connection details.
