My original question was going to be "Can a Windows process communicate with Linux running in a VM on the same machine?" but this is a little more specific.
I'm going to get a new machine soon, and was planning on Dual Booting Win7 and Ubuntu. I thought I might run Visual Studio in Windows, and have a LAMP set up in Ubuntu, on which I would host an SVN repository. However, obviously I cannot have VS and SVN running simultaneously with this set up.
This made me wonder if it would be possible to run Ubuntu in a VM, and check code into SVN from Visual Studio that way?
I'm entirely open to answers telling me this is a stupid idea, as long as you can give me a more reasonable one.
(I'm not sure if this is a really bad question or not, sorry if it's too waffly and not really asking anything specific.)
