IR 100: Windows and Linux Machines (20 pts)

Purpose

To prepare two virtual machines for use in projects: one running Windows 10 and one running Debian 10 Linux.

Here are some ways to do that:

Local Virtual Machines

This is a good solution if you have a somewhat powerful computer, with
40 GB or more available storage space and at least 4 GB of RAM.

Install a local hypervisor such as VMware or VirtualBox and use the
instructions below to prepare your machines.

Azure Cloud Machines

This is a good solution if you can't run local virtual machines. All you need is a Web browser.

Use the instructions below to prepare your machines.

Recording your Success

Once you have your machines going, find the flags below to record your success.
