    Just a thought, but could this ever happen?

    Wasn't sure whether to post this question here or

  2. Due to her emulation layer between the guest OS - the Host OS and then the
    host to hardware (memory/processor) - it is extremely unlikely.

    although benchmarks may look like a guest is faster, due to skips in
    timing. This goes for both VMWare and VPC

  4. If the host machine has some bad configurations for like network, etc and the guest OS is configured properly I could
    see this happening...
