I have an inkling this is a ‘no’ but I’m new to Ruby on Rails so I figured it’s worth a shot.
I’m used to sandboxing my web dev stuff on an external drive, specially this Toshiba model here. I currently have a AMPP stack installed on one which I plan to reformat and use for this, if possible.
I did read the guides on developing with Ruby/Rails on Windows, which sounds like I’d have to get a separate, full SSD just to start. Can I use a portable VirtualBox with the aforementioned Toshiba? Is it theoretically possible or not at all?
If it matters at all, my PC’s specs are: Windows 8.1, 10GB memory, 3.50 GHz six-core processor, 2TB SATA with 16 GB SSD for caching.
