> no, my native system is quite fine, why would I have to run a VM to run LP ? :)
It's not so much because you _have_ to. It's becuase you _can_. It is really very nice. I take advantage of virtualization nowadays whenever I can because it's just simplier and cleaner for myself to deal with.
Embrace it. Love it. VM is your friend. Especially if it's KVM... but other types are fine. The downside with KVM is that the 'total solution' for it is piecemeal and uses different packages rather then being a single package like it is for Virtualbox. It means manual configuration and whatnot for much of it, but the reward is stability, good performance, and customization.
The other major downside is that you need to have virtualization extensions for your hardware to use it.
