Indeed, i used to run lilybuntu live instead of installing it and then
running it from (virtual) hard drive - thanks, Phil!
Now i installed it and ran from hd. I had problems with guest
additions: clicking "install guest additions" from "devices" menu
apparently didn't do anything (tutorials on the web suggest that a
wizard should appear but it didn't). Surprisingly when i restarted
VirtualBox VBOXADDITIONS_ appeared out of nowhere. Is this behaviour
Nevertheless, now i can take advantage of 1920x1080 resolution. Looks
great! 2 hours of work had paid for themselves.

Oops, i didn't want to sound like that... Sorry.

Isn't that obvious? Along with the fact that i'd prefer to work on the
issues that bother me the most, no matter their difficulty?
Well, maybe i'll manage to resist the temptation.

I don't know. Maybe i'll just get familiar with things.

Yeah, i've read it already.
Do you think i should read

I'll probably try both. At least at some { c } score.

Thanks for help.
Good ...morning? (it's 3 am here in Poland)
