Running Windows 7 on a Ubuntu vbox (performance)

Has anyone tried running windows 7 via Vbox, with the host platform being Ubuntu 64?

How's the overall performance? How is the ninja trader performance?

Did you try that setup with the newest release of Vbox? I am considering that route and would appreciate your experience.

Thanks,
TJ

It works fine, with enough RAM a not too slow processor, but if it's for Ninja use, XP is a better choice, much lighter than Seven.
