I use Linux as my main OS but there are some apps that only work in Windows that I use occasionally such as AutoCAD, Google Sketchup and some basic games. For more intensive games I dual boot. Most of the basic apps like Google Sketchup will not start in a VM as I usually get an error related to video, depends on the app. Is there not a way to pass a video card directly so I can install the real drivers? I think most apps don't like the Virtualbox drivers so it just conks out. Would be nice if I can use some of these apps in a VM rather than dual boot all the time. Any way to do this? Or is there another virtualization solution that works better? I imagine complex apps like Autocad wont work in Wine so probably not worth trying.
