Virtualbox - XP and win7
 
So I was about to install windows 7 in VirtualBox (retail win7 home edition), but I remembered that I happen to also have a retail windows XP home edition that I bought forever ago and ended up not using.

If I only use one of the two, which would you recommend I use for my virtual machine?

Main uses will be just running some windows apps that I cant make Wine or Crossover run, and streaming netflix (which I can't figure out how to get working in linux).

Thanks

I would go for XP, it is less resource hungry. And you will get more bucks for your Windows 7 at ebay.
