6:00: specifically for Virtualbox if you choose "see all networks" or something similar you can choose the VirtNetwork (something like that) wifi option. I don't know how xen handles this (which is what qubesos runs on).

I disagree regarding about if 4GB are enough due the hard drive point of view is missed. my understanding if you have a decent SSD and 4GB the user experience might be good for almost Linux distribution.

4:40: if you find yourself in that position, where you have no apps, then you can hit Ctrl + Alt + F1 and drop yourself into a tty. which from their you can do the usb tethering that I talked about with your phone to pull ethernet.

general comment: if you want a minimal install, an ubuntu server install is very similar to arch linux if you want to have a small bar metal install.

7:20: you can actually connect to your phone through usb and use your phone in USB tethering mode to share a network without wifi and wpa_supplicant. https://www.howtogeek.com/170302/the-htg-guide-to-tethering-your-android-phone/

7:35 Create a windows virt-manager VM(s) (from the free isos Microsoft provides) on a shared ( in the sense that everyone in your family uses it) linux desktop, and just don't buy a license key. Then windows runs perfectly fine, but you don't get to customize it. So, your kids can do their homework assignments, and you don't have to stop them using Linux.
