Note that the article there is very out of date, but there is a link at the
top to a more current article.

It can run a Windows VM, but, at least in my experience, a Windows, or
actually, even a Linux with GUI, doesn't run as well as it does with
VirtualBox.  In addition, bridged networking takes a bit of work to set
up--not very difficult once you're familiar with it, but it's done with a
mouse click as it is in VirtualBox.

On the plus side, it seems (not thoroughly tested on my part) to be less
resource intensive than VBox, and better at sharing resources.
