Not to completely derail the thread, but did you need to do anything special to get OXL working? I've been using either "default" or "vmware" for my Displays and I haven't really thought about it since I normally don't access the console.

@OP: I can't really recommend anything other than either dual booting with Windows (which can be a pain), or installing Windows onto an external SSD and then booting off of it if you want to use Ubuntu as your main OS.
