Submission + - Virtualbox for tax software 2

slashdyke writes: My main and only computer system runs Ubuntu 12.04LTS. I like it, it works well, and it runs almost all the software I need it to. The exception to this rule, happenes in about a month from now at tax time. I use a windows based incometax package. I have yet to find one that works in linux for Canadian taxes.

So, I googled installing windows on a linux box, and up popped virtualbox. having never heard of it before, I thought I would ask how it works for you? It it a good solution? Is it the only solution? Is it a safe solution, ie, does it leave my system open to windows based virii?

Please tell me what you know... Thanks!
