I can't speak for which VM to use in Windows, but I run VM's all the
time for testing out GNU Radio on different versions of Linux and they
work fine. There have been issues in the past with I/O to devices;
specifically USB2.0 support. These have almost certainly been worked
out, but I bring it up as something to keep an eye on when deciding
which VM to use.
