I had installed kvm in Gutsy on my laptop last year, and was satisfied with the performance. You'll have to conduct a search using google to get more definitive data.

Factors that do make a difference are your cpu and available memory. For optimal results, your cpu(s) should support virtualization. And the more memory you have installed the better. I have 2GB installed presently. I was able to run both XP and Vista satisfactorily (separately).

Virtualization is definitely the way to go, when there is just that one application you have to use for work which only operates in Windows. Wine is great, but Virtualization is better.

Hope this helps,

Harvey
