Certainly for anything newer than XP it seems e1000 just works (or at
least could be fixed so it works) and is very efficient.  For XP though,
it does not seem supported out of the box.  One could always manually
install the e1000 driver and then make it work, but it probably isn't
a good default.  Of course one could question whether XP should hold
back good defaults for everything else, since after all linux as a guest
would work very well with e1000 as would many other OS choices.
