"Soccer" came from Oxford University students, shortening "association football". They also came up with "Rugger", shortening "rubgy football".
Given both words came from what most normal Brits deem(ed) a snobbish institution in a period where association football was considered the "working men's game", it is not much of a surprise that it never caught on in the minds of the impoverished British labourers of the past.
Even "Rugger" is rarely, if ever, used now - it is also widely considered a "toff" word..
I've got an old I5-2500 with 8GB of ram (I know i know, i need to upgrade!)
I'm attempting to run ubuntu as my primary OS, with Win10 in a virtualbox (oracle) in order to run VS2017
Mainly because windows keeps getting slower and slower the longer it's installed, and because VS2017 has a nasty habit of hosing my windows and VS installations (with respect to VSIX projects for some reason).
But I have no idea if any of this will even work reliably as I'm really testing the limits of this machine with this configuration and it's a huge upfront investment in time and bandwidth installing VS without even being sure it will work.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
This may save you the time of installing VS2017 and Windows on a virtualbox VM.
