I think people need to stop using these platforms for them to take notice. There are alternatives to Yutoob already.
For almost everything there are decent alternatives

By the way I didn't even bother about activation of windows within virtualbox and it still runs. I don't know if it's activated or not??
I installed win10 this week on my desktop without a key and it was activated immediately.

Social Media is Draining You
Only if you let it happen / want it.
I had faciesbook but deleted it about 2 years ago, sorry for those 6 (yes six) friends I had there. 1 of them switched to signal, but within a year signal was deleted.
Never heard from that friend again.

Re: Windows 10 over Linux Mint

Have not installed windows the last couple of years, but you could choose the partition(s) you want to use. Make empty space at the beginning of your hard drive, windows can then make the necessary partitions and install. Your Grub will be ruined, but yoiu can fix it with rescatux / supergrub and so...

Re: Can't Install Windows 10 - Driving Me Mad

If you want a bootable USB stick with windows 10 you need on Linux woeusb
https://github.com/slacka/WoeUSB
If you have acces to a windows computer you need the windows media creation tool or Rufus

Maybe there are more, but these I know that they work

The support folks on Plex's forum kinda sorta require that you use a supported distro, and Mint isn't one of them.

Also, you say you did this previously. Meaning installed WinXP? To my knowledge, no way to do that without a retail license (not OEM). Is that what you did?
Depends on the kind of OEM. Some are specific for a computer brand. System Builder cd's work fine in Virtualbox
