    (Linux Users) Unity Mode is Brilliant


    Hi there

    Unity mode (when it works) is really good

    Currently upgrading a W8.1 VM to W10 -- so snapshot is of existing VM before upgrade running on Linux

    The Integrated Unity mode makes it very simple for running any Windows program from your VM without leaving your Linux desktop - this is what XP mode SHOULD have been too. Here I can see all the programs acessible from my Linux desktop (you can create short cuts too) and also showing EXCEL running on the Linux desktop -- it's NATIVE EXCEL from the VM not WINE.

    I hope this continues to work for W10 VM's. You need a LINUX HOST system to use this feature though.
