As an exercise, I would like to see how well Windows XP and ReactOS perform running in a virtual machine in Knoppix. I have used Oracle Virtualbox to run WinXP in Linux Mint 13 Mate successfully (using 800 meg ram), but appreciate there are major differences between Mint 13 and Knoppix, and I have also read an old post where KVM was recommended over Virtualbox (several years old).

I would appreciate any advice from anyone who is already doing this. Which is the best VM for Knoppix?

Why? Well Wine doesn't run the apps I use, I prefer Linux as my main OS, and I want to try out Knoppix.

Has anyone played with ReactOS in a VM with a Knoppix host? I'd love your feedback.

thanks in advance,

Peter Perros
