    Question Virtual Machine


    Currently I am dual booting Windows and Linux. I find my self almost never going to Windows because it is not convenient.

    So I am thinking of upgrading Linux to Fedora and installing Virtual Box as a virtual machine and running Windows and Windows applications there. Quite possibly Photoshop and MS Access and maybe Visual Studio as well.

    I do have a few questions:

    How well, performance wise would these Windows applications work?

    Any gotchas or major issues?

    Do you still need a data partition formatted to ntfs. There is not way I know of for Windows to read ext3 or ext4 data partitions or IS THERE?

    Thanks in advance.

    My suggestion would be running Microsoft virtual pc ...coz vmware's has some services
    that choke the system performance ... so its better to stick with Microsoft virtual pc.
    another advantage's are disk usage and ram allocation ...as you wish u can allocate the both ...
    There is no need of creating partition ..etc
