I ran Windows XP on both VMWare and VirtualBox on a Linux host with only 
1GB ram and a dual-core processor. I can't say that I experienced a 
significant slowdown of Windows on that box. Yes, it was a bit slower 
than the host Linux OS, but that is to be expected, considering I was 
only able to reserve 256MB of ram for XP. It surprisingly wasn't 
anywhere near painfully slow however, and I even played some games on 
the Windows side without any difficulty. I can't say what is causing 
your problem, as I no longer run Windows on anything these days, with 
the exception of a very old, very slow dual-boot box, and then, only for 
printing on a Windows-only printer that I'm desperate to part with in 
favor of a printer that runs either on Linux or over a network. I'm 
guessing your problem has something to do with the way Windows handles 
more than two processor cores, but again, I can't be sure.
