Just wanted to let everyone know that I am now all in. My system is 100% ubuntu. I just merged my partitions and erased xp. No dual boot for this guy anymore. Granted the wife is still a dual booter, but she has to have more specific programs for work and her laptop really cant go the virtual route.

Awesome, I went almost two years without a dual boot but I am back on it for grand theft auto 4 on windows XP 64-bit edition SP2. Pushing the limits of my AMD 3200, I actually get 23 FPS:

I have decided to run xp virtually for any games that I want to play. Well those that wont play in wine. My only complaint with ubuntu thus far is that firefox is HORRIBLY unstable for some reason. I have uninstalled all addons etc but chromium is so much more stable for some reason

konqueror is good alternative too and you don't need a complete KDE installation, simply use


sudo apt-get install konqueror

You cannot run intense graphical games like COD5 and GTAIV through virtual box.
