  Let me start by saying that I’m new to virtualization.  I’m running Windows 8 on my laptop, but would like to virtualize Ubuntu so that I can boot it for running code, testing Linux programs, etc. I tried this with Virtual PC 2007 (I allocated 1G of RAM for Ubuntu), and it was very slow. I’ve been told that Hyper-V would provide better performance. Is this true?
