The key words here are '3D graphics editors' I think.
I am entirely happy with KVM-hosted Windows 7/8 instances over a LAN
(not WAN) for most uses (accounts etc), but I reckon you need all the
graphics performance you can get.
So VMWare player (which now permits creation of VMs) or VirtualBox are
those that have some acceleration of graphics.
For 3D I'd go for VMWare myself (and indeed, I did).
