Thanks you for infos and screenshots. I think I will see later for Vmware Workstation later if I really need it.
I have installed VirtualBox 4.12 and started playing with.
I have now Ubuntu 11.10 installed as well my XP home. I had to find drivers for audio for XP , but all works fine now.
I guess I can use two separate LCD monitors but did not found yet how to manage this.
Into XP I can run very older software I keep for ages.
Thanks again for help and infos.
Edit* Found easy way to use second LCD for VM full screen.
