I (have to, *sigh*) run two VMs:
_ an headless Ubuntu 64b which works very well and is fast enough before 
I even try to optimize it;
_ a non-headless Windows Vista 64b, whose performance I feel to be very 
poor and found no way to improve (but then again, a similar hardware box 
is not so fast either, with Vista...).

I never had any problem wrt to stability.

As someone else pointed out, be sure to have plenty of free RAM.

Just my 2c, but if you have any more questions, just ask.
