Last week, I needed to prepare some slides, and I wanted to use the notebook for that. I have Windows 10 installed, and after it turned on, I had a big surprise. I clicked on Start Menu and nothing was happening… I clicked on the search magnifier, and nothing happened as well.

Recently I wanted to build a virtual machine with Debian 8, PostgreSQL and Python, to import some data. I use Windows as my main operating system, plus VirtualBox for virtualization, and my best option to create the virtual machine recipe (vagrantfile) was Vagrant, because AZK didn’t support Windows (at the moment of writing, still doesn’t). With the recipe, I could deliver to my client a virtual machine ready for development and production environments.
I went through some problems, which were specific to the Vagrant 1.8.1 and Windows (7 and 10) mix, and I would like to share the solutions that I found to solve everything.

Some time ago, I’ve published a way to configure a sharing between Linux and Windows, without needing to authenticate. That model worked well with Debian 6, but with Debian 8, I had to change Samba configuration a little bit.

A client has a server with Windows Server 2008 installed, running IIS 7.5 and ISAPI 3 (TASK hosting).
I needed to put a Laravel project running his server, and the problem was the rewrite needed for the framework. How I would do the htaccess from Laravel work on IIS?

To develop my projects, I have a Linux virtual machine on my Desktop and Notebook. When I configured, used a 10GB HD, guessing it would take too long to not have enough space…
The problem is that it didn’t took too long, and suddenly I was with only 900MB of free space. I needed to resize my virtual machine HD, and it is on VMDK (Virtual Machine Disk) format. This format is cool because we can transit between different virtualization softwares… On my case, I like to use Virtual Box from Oracle.
