    Again, why? It still doesn't make any sense. Wine on a regular linux install is still going to have less overhead (and more then likely a lot less compatibility issues as you are removing another layer of translation). If you were to run a native install of Windows in the instance then perhaps you might see a small gain but using a hypervisor to run a linux installation that is running wine emulation is just going to have the opposite effect of what you are trying to accomplish.

      Safety reasons only. The regression is less than 5% with direct access to the Gpu.

        Which brings in another item. Direct access is only available to CPU and chipsets that support VT-d or AMD-Vi and there are much easier ways to make the system "safer" then going through a convoluted way of a VM

          As a gamer I am much more concerned about overheard and compatibility than concerns about having foreign software on my computer. That is why I support native game titles.
