Has anyone used Windows on a virtual machine under Ubuntu?
How does Visual Studio 2010 work on it?
I've installed it across 60+ concurrently running VMs of windows XP in virtualbox, for computer science classes. VS wasn't used much, mostly netbeans was used, but that was because most of the courses were java not .NET.
That said, it ran fine when I tested it.
If you have VT extensions on your CPU and they're enabled in the bios, it's not really any slower than running it on a physical windows box. VS 20xx was always a bit of a dog on the machines I used it on.
If you don't have VT extensions, it will be a little slower, especially launch time, and some contextual menus may lag a bit at first, but it's quite usable.
