If anyone knows anything about me, it's persistence and perseverance!!  For the last 90 days, its been heck with Virtualbox 5.22 -> 6,  Peppermint OS 9 encryption, Codeweavers Crossover 18 -> 18.5, and Microsoft Office 2016 / 2019 Professional Plus.
 
Here is my tweet today to thank everyone who had anything to do with making all of that worth it.
 
We did it!!!
 

Computers are cool! @Reno89512

Must be my birthday! All stacked up & installed!! Works fine, in that order: Virtual box 6, Peppermint 9 OS LVM, install apt-get update then upgrade, reboot, Crossover 18.5, apply opt fix, reboot, Office 2016 Pro Plus. Thank you. @virtualbox @PeppermintOS @CodeWeavers @office
