Hi there,

I would like to use Xamarin to make a cross platform app. Right now I am using Ubuntu. Since Xamarin does not support Linux, I have Xamarin install installed inside Virtualbox running on my Ubuntu machine. I am wondering how I'd test my app inside the Android emulator. Since I am already inside a VM, I assume the emulator would be very slow if running inside the VM? Is it possible to run the emulator on the Ubuntu host machine then let the app inside the VM connect to it?
