Visual Studio Development on Virtual Box, Boot Camp, or VMWare Fusion

I currently have a Mac, 2ghz and 2 gigs of ram, running OS X Leopard and Virtual Box with a Windows 7 Pro 32bit virtual machine.

I use Parallels to develop in Windows 7 with .NET on my Macbook Pro with 4GB of RAM, and I haven't experienced any significant performance issues. It's a breeze, and with coherence mode it's very unobtrusive. IMO it's a much better solution for doing development than using VMWare or VirtualBox on a Mac. I'd definitely recommend the RAM upgrade, it is absolutely the best bang for your buck these days, and with prices like they are, how can you resist?
