I'm writing a book on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and since 14.10 came out (I 
needed the newer LibreOffice for revisions with my publisher using 
Word), I've been running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS in VirtualBox with no problems 
at all.  It should just work.

Due to the 3D acceleration requirements of Unity, though, you'll want to 
make sure that you have the guest extensions installed, preferably from 
VirtualBox and not the Additional Drivers dialog box.
