  1. When you say directly installing Ubuntu on a computer is complicated and can cause issues is that in the context of installing it side by side with windows or a clean install? I've never had issues installing directly or dual booting? It's much easier now than 8 years ago (which even then just took a little reading.) I do agree however, that installing it virtually is probably the best way to acquaint oneself with it before jumping headlong into it. I am enjoying the lessons..!

  2. Or Try this:
    When the message that "your system is running in low-graphics mode" appears press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to enter the termina. Then login with your credentials, and then run the following commands:

    sudo apt-get install fglrx
    sudo reboot

  3. If you install it within VirtualBox, it will run side-by-side. If you decide to run it actually on your computer, you can either replace Windows, or, which I'd recommend is Dual-boot your computer so that when you launch your computer you may choose to boot into either Windows or Ubuntu.
