5chdn's solution is too cumbersome. Instead of Alt, use Win+Alt in guest and you're done. For example, to use Rubymine's multiple caret mode, original shortcut is Alt+click, which becomes Win+Alt+click. Easy peasy.

There is no one single good answer to this. It depends a lot on how you use a VM and on which programs. E.g. using VMWare (a type 2 hypervisor) and a purely CPU bound program yielded almost full CPU speed. If I used the same hypervisor an a program with a lot of system calls I would get a serious slowdown. And things alos change when you use a type 1 ...

For number-crunching programs (very CPU-bound), there should be almost zero performance hit for the VM. The instructions run directly on the CPU, which is the same for host and VM. Even for serious compilation tasks, the performance difference is hardly noticeable. We run CentOS VMs in VMware on Windows. Since you're running Linux on the host, you might ...

Using cloud services to bolster your CPU performance is possible but bloated. To render the videos you would need an extremely fast network connection to constantly upload and download each individual file to cloud get it rendered there and then download it. Cloud computing would be more useful if you where executing simple commands on a large amount of ...
