Linux Distributions

I have a Samsung laptop that I bought with Windows OS in it. I needed to use windows OS and Linux Mint; therefore, I had to format the OS. I installed Linux but I did not set a password, however, I set one for Windows, as it is compulsory. The computer boots fine but whenever I access Linux, it asks for a password. I have tried all sorts of passwords including the windows password but none seems to work. How am I to go about this?

Linux is as powerful as Windows though it doesn't run all Windows applications. I can't understand why people use illegal copies of Windows OS when Linux is available for free with the same capabilities. What will Microsoft do to stop piracy and free distribution of its Windows OS in the near future?

I have one intel compute stick with ubuntu 14.04 LTS pre-installed, which means it has only 1GB of RAM. I want to install Linux Mint in place of ubuntu. Is it possible for me to change its operating system? If someone has done it before, can I get guidelines on how to perform it?

I want to install Linux inside my Genuine copy of Windows as an application. I mean, I want my system to show the distro of Linux which I've installed in my rig inside the control panel. Is it possible to what I'm saying? If no, what can be done in order to do so? Are there any developers who are looking forward to doing this? P.S. I want to do the above mentioned work without using Virtual Box.
