comment Performance impact of running Linux in a virtual machine in Windows?
Thank you so much for your extremely comprehensive answer! I'm really glad to hear that modern virtualisation technologies need so little overhead for cpu-bound activities. It's sad that problems arise when using a virtual machine with several vCPUs, because one can get a great performance gain compiling several files with GCC simultaneously in multiple threads on separate cores. I wonder if there is some way of giving 3 out of 4 cores to a VM solely and putting all other native tasks to the remaining core so that the host scheduler wouldn't affect performance of the VM.

4 Gb so far, but I can easily double it if needed.
