Hmm... too old.  You need to upgrade, at least to find out how useless
"virtualizations" are.

I was doing fine with my single-core AMD64 (AM2/2.4GHz/45W) and 8GB ram.
Over the Christmas/New Year holidays, I was bitten by Virtualization
bug.  So, I upgraded to quad-core Phenom X4 9750 (2.4GHz/125W).  Now,
I'm back to single-core.
