        I'm a level 3 network administrator & I support both Windows & 
Linux servers in my job. My preference is to run Windows in a session 
within Linux, the Windows actually runs better as it only uses generic 
drivers to run I.E. Graphics, network etc I use Virtualbox by SUN it is 
in the repo's & is a dream to use. If you want USB support in Windows 
you will have to install it from the SUN site but that is easy too.
