    Windows 8.1 GUEST - Linux HOst in Unity mode menus fixed

    Hi there
    after getting / enabling 3D and hardware acceleration to work on Windows Guest from OPENSUSE 13.1 Linux HOST the UNIT mode application menus work just fine

    One caveat -- The Metro store app starts automatically -- you have to close that and remove from windows task bar when you leave unity mode.

    Screenshot enc with IE11 running in unity mode on Linux KDE desktop with application menus working.
