Virtual Station

1. Introduction

Disposable Nodes need the Ubuntu operating system to run, if you CANNOT run Ubuntu directly on your device, then Virtual Machine is a good workaround.

You can rent virtual machines from many providers online and you can also run virtual machine on your own computers.

1. Virtual Box

Virtual Box is available on Microsoft Windows and Apple macOS, currently Virtual Box is recommended since it is free, open sourced and actively being developed and deployed.
