    Where is this option set? I cannot find it. Thanks.

    For those saying this, can you tell us why "VMware hands down"?
    Is the performance better? easier to use?

    Well, for a couple of months I ran both on my main box and laptop.

    One thing that I required was copy, cut, and paste between Ubuntu and Windows. I got it reliably in vmware, not in vbox.

    Another was ease of use and updating paths... I liked vmware the best.

    Speed, quickness, hard to say, but both seemed to satisfy my graphic design needs using what you see in my signature below.

    The "hands down" has to do with cut-copy-paste for me. For others, let them speak.
