If you use a VM, you shouldn't have any problems either (but you may have to install VMware Tools).
I couldn't install Workstation as the version I have (7.1.6) is too old (i.e. it doesn't have the updates for the newer kernels).
It did run correctly in Ubuntu 10.
Where is Windows heading?
To the trash cart...
Microsoft is so big is could collapse like rock hitting water...
To survive MS need to think smaller and more compact.
Stop wasting billions on mistakes (Vista & 8)
Be more rational in its moves.
If it does not then it will sink fast like a gaping hole in a ship.
Windows will follow behind it.
"The futures bright, but more slim-lined"
Other than a very short foray, well in the past, where Apple allowed third party manufacturers to make hardware, Apple has always made the hardware and software. Noting that Apple desktops and laptops are really in the weeds as far as take-up is concerned, I wonder what would happen if Apple did allow third party manufacturers to make systems based on OSX? I have a feeling that there could well be a huge surge in OSX uptake at the expense of Windows.
Maybe machines that are well suited to content creation will be a niche market in a few years. Content consumers (mobiles, internet connected TVs, etc.) could be the primary market. I can imagine Apple as having a much larger share of a much smaller market.
MS is hoping to get everything up there - including the os itself.
There will be cost and privacy issues for the punters.

The OS space seems to be opening up for Linux and Apple more and more by the looks of it.
