Just Virtualbox for now zoomy. I don't use a vm often enough to justify paying for one, but that may change soon too.

I use Virtual Box as well. I'll look at my settings when I get home. I used it to install Win 8. I had the same problem as you at first.

Got it, thanks anyway

EDIT: Not much to say that hasn't already been said. Having a bit of trouble with screen rez, but it's pretty basic so far.

With such an early build they have to be planning to offer a switch to desktop for default on boot. I hope.
