1. Although you should be able to get it running in both environments I
would suggest that you keep both the development and production
environments as close as possible. There are lots of little differences
between the operating systems and you will spend time cleaning up bugs
that you wouldn't run into otherwise. I have been playing with Virtual
Box quite a bit recently both at work and at home and it works great as
a development environment.
