I'm interested in trying my hand at creating achievements.

But I am a linux user. I'm considering setting up a virtualbox with windows to play with the tools. Would Windows 7 suffice? or would I need to step up. I can't seem to find any requirements for the programs.

I don't think I'm too worried about the performance hit of using virtualbox as NES games would probably be my focus.

Any thoughts or information.

thanks!

Windows 7 is fine.
WINE works too but has issues especially with the current version's memory viewer that does not display the addresses correctly and makes it inadequate for development. Maybe it can be solved with configuration tweaks, I have not tried it.

Yeah, I just installed Windows 7. I'll start playing / going through the tutorials and docs in the next bit.
