What virtualization software/technology/guest/host are you using to run your Linux vm?
I am running Oracle VM VirtualBox. They have improved it since Sun had the thing. I used VMware Fusion on my Mac when I was developing for Teksouth a few years back. I liked it, but it was the paid version. Plus, I was a MS TechNet member before they dissolved that and my development licenses for the various Windows installations I was running virtually to develop.
pretty sweet computer
RE: [The above picture is before and I saw many of your systems loaded and I was embarrassed how sloppy this build is. So, I tore it down and the following pictures are what it is now like inside.]
Believe me, mine is worse.
Your build looks really clean now though, that gives me some hope that I could tidy my build up ;-).
Can I ask you to expand on how you are running your PC OS please?
Are you running Windows as your Primary OS and running Linux on Oracle VM VirtualBox?
Which version of Windows is your Primary OS?
Is there any reason why you do not run Linux straight from a Hard Drive of SSD?
Also have you thought of running Linux as your Primary OS and running Windows as Virtual Machine instead?
