Re: need a good xp emulator
Hmm, yes, now that you mention it. My bad.

Googling for "ubuntu host vmware player versus virtualbox" seems to provide the same outcome over- and over again.
Vmware wins performance-wise. Not so many results though with an Ubuntu/Linux host.
From my own experience. A few months ago I had problems with running an older Windows XP game properly through Wine (The Godfather 1 the game).
Since it's actually quite an older directx9 game, I figured it could possibly run through a virtual windows xp setup.
And indeed, it certainly did run better in virtualbox than native under wine, but it ran even more better (read: faster fps-wise) through vmware.
So it's definitely something for majorburt to have a look at in comparison.
Currently running Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal (64bit) installed on core i7 950/ 6GB/Geforce GTX 460 SOC 1GB system.
