I am running Lion 10.7.2 on VMWare 8 on Linux (Ubuntu 11.10) is smoother and fasten than on Windows (I used to run it on Win7 Ultimate 64bit is lag while drag a window)


This my iBench result..

Because Linux is faster than Windows! Linux has a best memory management and use less RAM. To run virtual machines the best Linux distro is SliTaz, that use only 90MB of RAM when running!

It would be even better if Slitaz was able to configure nvidia graphics in an easy way... (not much to ask in 21st century)





Never managed Slitaz to work, so had to settle for Puppy based Fatdog 64-bit
