well I can not help on the compatibility but I use Virtualbox and run
both XP and Vista for purpose of user-support and all works very well.
USB-support is in the "non-OSE"-version so I am not using the one in the
repos, network is very smooth. Better or not I can not say, just that VB
works very well.
