We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

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.

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.
