Wine is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several operating systems, such as Linux, Mac OSX, & BSD.   It can be installed via Lite Software (Menu, System, Lite Software).  https://www.winehq.org/about/

VM is a virtual machine, a software computer.

Vbox is short for Virtualbox.  It is used to create software based computers, ie. virtual computers.  It can also be installed via Lite Software.  You can install Virtualbox onto Linux Lite, and install other operating systems into a virtual machine within Virtualbox.

Wine itself has no licensing issues that I know of. Running Windows itself in a virtual machines, though, does. I'm not sure if using the oem Windows license attached to the original hardware will work when Windows is in a VM.

Hello!

Actually, the WordPad that comes with Windows 7 is quite a powerful little program. It reads and saves documents in many formats, including Office's .docx format...

I take it that would be the "Office Open XML Document" Save as type?
