Windows XP inside Ubuntu!
I downloaded Virtual Box for my version of Ubuntu, popped in a Windows XP OEM/crapware CD for my old laptop expecting it not to work...

Wow! Half hour later,

Yeay!

Still hardly believing my success, I entered my magic key:

Downloaded the entire Internet, except for Internet Explorer 7 and DRM addons for media players:

Customized it for speed...

O_o and it even ran my game! With a sod-awful frame rate though.

My game ran better using Wine though, which isn't an emulator but a compatibility layer, so it sorta runs 'natively'(ish) but I'm hoping the Cobra IDE will run faster in the Virtual Box.

I just saved £300 on a new laptop!

If I were downloading the ENTIRE internet, I would leave out IE also

I use FireFox, but I don't agree with all this IE bashing. IE 7 has always been far more stable and reliable for me then FireFox 2. Just an hour ago FF refused to acknowledge mouse clicks on the tabs. Clicking everywhere else was fine, but I had to use ctrl+tab for switching between tabs.

Would it not be better to just do a duel boot between Windows and Linux? Wine and Virtual Box will never be as good as the real thing.

Hmm... this looks cool!
Don't you dare go spending 300 quid on a new PC when you're supposed to give 2500 (5000 USD) to Jay! :o
