  VMware (Virtual Machine)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

pretty much everything

What doesn't work:

Only what is related to the limitations of using virtual machines. The biggest issue is reducing the graphic load even lower than nothing (such as the login screen shaking when the password is incorrect)

Additional notes:

Mint is a god send at work. My VM is being run off one of the servers and not my local machine allowing me to avoid the 99% CPU clogging daily security scans. Additionally, mint was super easy to install even for the Windows people in IT, and has allowed me to quickly get the rest of what i needed to work with :)
