Our experience with using virtual machines is as follows:

  • Ubuntu 12.04 on VirtualBox with Windows 7 host: works, but choppy graphics; well below real-time simulation rate on recent HP Envy laptop (don't remember exact number)
  • Ubuntu 12.04 on Parallels with OS X host: works, but choppy graphics, 0.4 real-time rate on latest 15 inch Macbook Pro

No trouble installing on either system. By the way, the VirtualBox image found at http://www.ros.org/wiki/ROS/Installation did not work for me (error on import with OS X host).
