    Unity Mode - Brilliant way of running a Windows VM

    Hi there

    On a Linux desktop I think the Unity Mode is brilliant -- you can have your Windows apps and menus on a Linux desktop withou any messing around for Wine -- also you only need the actual application to open in the window so you don't need any of Windows desktop backgrounds !!!
