I agree with Adam, with the caveat that the preliminary question should
probably be "what are you trying to accomplish?" As an engineer /
developer / admin, I've been mac-based for over a decade and run a
ubuntu VBox instance on my laptop. All my Windows instances are
deployed on kvm (formerly VBox) as VMs.
In Adams use case, running a VBox Windows VM on Linux metal, and using
RD to access and use the VM is virtually identical to using Windows on
metal. This affords you with options of taking snapshots before making
drastic changes, running updates, testing, etc.
