I'm tottaly new to Ubuntu. Only played with it in the last few days while I waited for the new drive to come (LiveUSB persistent)
I'm really impressed with it (and sick of Windows' sluggishness) and would like to use it as a permanent solution. However, I cannot use my architectural programs under Linux. For that I was thinking to use a VM and then run apps in Unity. Will I have big drawbacks in performance? (Beside the obvious RAM usage)
My other question is will Ubuntu use a SSHD Drive properly (use the NAND memory to speed up) or should I go with Windows 8?
Must specify that my laptop has 6gb of RAM, Intel Core i5 CPU and dedicated ATI video card. The SSHD Drive is totally new, which I bought to replace the old dead one.
