Usb would work fine in a vm (most likely), but what wouldn't work is keeping accurate time. Realtime media apps have a hard time with the virtual clock, eg playback. For that, you have to be native (close to bare metal as far as the media subsystem goes).

We are now getting a version of Ubuntu that can be run that includes the files for Quisk and the Charleston receiver. We should be able to distribute DVD disks that will bring up Charleston/Quisk/Ubuntu on a computer either as a live load or as a hard drive install. AMRAD member Rob Bowers has been working on this and a big tip of the AMRAD hat to Rob. Stay tuned.

For those that don't run Linux on their desktop, it would be an easy way to use the software. There's a free VMware Player<http://www.vmware.com/products/player/> that could be used on Linux and Windows to run VMware appliance images.

I'm not sure that this would work, since the Charleston board uses a
high-speed USB connection to Quisk. The software will probably
function, but the USB drivers may not play right. I've heard of other
USB-based devices having trouble in virtual machines. But, I do not
have any first-hand knowledge.
