Hi Skip,
i am running Ubuntu with VMware workstation on it, and XP as a VM. been
doing it for more than 6 months, on a Dell laptop, and the only issue i have
is with Ubuntu itself, switching from Laptop mode to docking station mode
(with 2 screens). for some reason, it will not keep the 2 screen setup and i
need to set it again every time. but i'm drifting here.
despite not trying the reverse angle, i think Windows VM on Linux will
probably be the recommendation, at least in a LUG list... :)
