I second everything Robert has written.

My team is currently migrating from a cloud platform to our own hosted
approach using Flare 2017 to manage our content. The process is fairly
complicated, but I'm happy to report that setting up Virtual Box, Windows,
and Flare was very easy. There are one or two counterintuitive or
unexpected steps, but those done, the rest is very smooth.

You can drag and drop files between environments as well as set up shared
folders. You can use the full range of hot keys. Flare works fine. It's a
beast of course, so you'll want to be able to give your VM 6+ gigs of RAM.
We're using git because our engineers do, and setting that up was also
easy. If you Google around for discounts, you can find some pretty sharp
discounts on Windows licenses. We got ours for $50 or so, and they seem to
be legal. :)

If you decide to go that route, feel free to drop me a line and I can walk
you through it. Right now, I'm neck deep in this migration, but I should be
able to help after mid-April.

All the best,
Ryan
