So it is the case that the user experience of Vista is not good without

So is Vista practical under virtualization?

From a Microsoft staff member's own words - Vista and Windows 2003 both run
fastest under XEN in SLES.

Highly unlikely. Xen cannot beat VBox.

Go figure.

Oh, and I haven't tried much of the effects. I can't stand that kind of thing,
which I why I don't run Compiz or Beryl.

I am running the VM on a dual-core 32-bit P-IV 2.0GHz system with 2G RAM, one
GB assigned to the VM, along with 128MB video.
He-he. 128MB won't help you. This is a 2D card, so you can reduce it
to 16MB VRAM.
