I use Linux on my home computer and Windows on my work computer. Sometimes I hate to admit it, but there are a lot of good things about Windows. By windows I mean WinXP and Win7.Â As forÂ Linux, I particularly mean Ubuntu 9.04.

I installed Sun's VirtualBox 3.0 last week. I'm in love.
As of last week, I have no dual boot. Yay! No more juggling partitions. No more fiddling with NTFS from Linux or EXT3/4 from Windows. No more waiting for full restarts. I'm always in Ubuntu and run Windows 7 on top. It is great for a few programs my wife uses that don't work under wine.
