I have Ubuntu installed on my system. Now I have a project to do using Visual Studio in C#. I want to know whether I can install Windows inside a Virtual Box and then install Visual Studio. Will I be able to develop Csharp application in a virtual environment? Will the Virtual Box support the running of Visual Studio software? Thanks in advance.


Yes. You shouldn't have problems in developing in virtual environment. My friend uses ubuntu and virtual box to develop in Visual studio and he also uses VB to develop on OSX, i think(not sure about osx). He says that he had no problems. You may encounter problems if you're dealing with some complex graphics.


yes, you can. Windows in virtualbox works very similar to how it works on a regular non virtual host. The only part that may be a bit troublesome is developing apps that use directx.
