    Hi there,

    I randomly came accross a thread the other day (on another forum) that referred to people that had managed to get Mediaportal running on Linux by installing it via Virtual box - i.e. installing Windows inside Linux.

    I am slightly intrigued by this but cannot see any real benefit - as far as I can see, all it would mean is that the HTPC would lose a bit of RAM from running two operating systems at once.

    Is there a major benefit of doing this that I have obvriously missed?
