10 As Nikos mentioned, no problem.
12 I have Linux KVM also available here, so instead of migrating the VM to
13 virtualbox (and installing that) I could also migrate the VM to KVM and
14 get rid of VMware. Using the "player" was only kind of curiosity back

16 had problems w/ specific USB-devices in KVM. Should be solved long ago)
