I would think so too (I mean slow response on VM). It was for that
reason I didnt do a virtual machine solution, although after trying
cygwin for 2 days I was highly tempted. If some one has done a VM and
used GNU radio with moderate success, please let me know the

I just would like to clarified for others that I figured out what the
problem was but I have no solution for it.
The problem "usrp: failed to find usrp" is (I think) caused by
Virtual Box and the way the control of USB connections is passed (or
not passed) through. I do not know how to tell Virtual Box to pass,
for instance, all USB connections to the guest OS.
If anybody uses Virtual Box and a Linux guest OS with GNURadio
I tried this some time ago with Ubuntu 9.04 as guest OS. I remember I
had to explicitly enable USB devices individually. I did that via
Devices->USB Devices in the main menubar after I plugged in the USRP
(I think you can also do that if you click on the small USB connector
icon at the bottom of the VM window).
It was running (http://twitpic.com/wyylv) but performance on my iMac
was very slow. I couldn't make 3D acceleration work and the VM
couldn't keep up with USRP data rates except with decimation rates >
250, so I abandoned that experiment.
