I would like to install VirtualBox on my Windows 7 laptop. I am planning to run Redhat EL in the VirtualBox.
I had some bad experience with VmWare which has installed several drivers on my system, the whole system got bloated.
I would like to know how installing VirtualBox on a Win7 laptop would effect the general performance of the computer, such as boot time, disk access and networking. Would my Win7 be slower after VirtualBox installation (when VirtualBox is NOT running )?
