Win4Lin 5.0 makes big improvements

Considering VirtualBox is not free as in beer if you want USB support. Also, I've had nothing but issues from VirtualBox. VirtualBox would not work with my IPOD. It would detect it, but do nothing. I-tunes wouldn't even detect it. My camcorder, which has 0 Linux support, would be recognized, but the supplied software would not function with the camera. 1 problem after another. VMware server was free as in $$$, but extremely slow to start, huge install size, and just plain clunky to use. Win4Lin gives me the superior hardware support over VirtualBox and superior performance over VMware. For me, it is my choice of VM.
