My computing experience dates back to the eighties when DOS was brand new and home machines ran on CP/M. From building my own systems I have some understanding in hardware and other complicated things but it is my believe that an OS has to be easy to use and to configure. That's why I use Ubuntu.

As soon as guest additions are properly installed the guest will use the maximum resolution the host provides. You may run in fullscreen mode for a 100% full resolution.

Graphics 3D support depends on the virtualization software you are using (which?). Here 14.04 runs without issue on Virtual Box.

Try with steps in my answer there: askubuntu.com/questions/30396/… - for a server host/guest I'd recommend to use network shares (Samba) rather than the VBox shared folders.
