My PC is running Windows 7, I need to install Ubuntu for some development (Python / django / etc). Considering the need of running quite memory-consuming apps (like Aptana and/or other Eclipse based IDEs) what are pros & cons of each of following choices:
- native (parallel) installation
- virtualization (Windows 7 + VirtualBOX hosting Ubuntu guest)
I'm just used to developing under Ubuntu, but now I have the new machine which need to run Windows 7 (VisualStudio) and wondering which is the best choice.
What is the real penalty of running under VirtualBox? The adventage is no rebooting and saving the session...
