Will "fresh ubuntu 10.10 install" be more fast than "running ubuntu10.10 from VMware workstation on windows 7" ?

Running any OS 'Natively' (installed directly on the hardware) is always faster, However: Ubuntu still runs very nicely in the VMware player on windows.

Linux based OS distributions need less horsepower and less memory than MS windows.

p.s. You can also use another free VM tool: Virtual Box. Both will work fine.
