actually using VirtualBox on xubuntu, I have ignored VirtualBox for ages because it used to be useless, e.g. no USB support etc, but thought I would give it a try since I am sick and tired of VMware changing editions/licensing etc every other day + you often have to patch it to get it to work on the latest Linux kernels ...
sooooo since VirtualBox (now Oracle-VirtualBox
) was available as a prebuilt debian package I gave it a go and .. wow a million times better than before, USB works , far easier to understand virtual network options, windows 8 ready (its in the list of 'what are you going to install') and so far so very good, though I did like the Unity feature in VMware so you could bring your windows programs to your Linux desktop, as far as I can tell thats not in the options
install was fast and easy (installed from ISO image) and all good until I get into windows8 itself ~ it runs very well, just really not liking it as noted above.
Windows 7 is good yes, seriously they should have split 8 as a tablet/phone edition or similar.... XP was cool but better hardware support in W7 so using that for anything windows related I have to do, and yes waiting for W9 now as well
actually IE10 is quite cool, not that I gonna start using it but did quite like the feel of it.
