$45 donation to UNNA. The downside is it is locked to your particular
Newton. You need to pay $45 for each newton you wish to use it with. I
haven't used it myself, but it does work with all versions of windows
and others have said it stable/works really well. But it does avoid the
whole slowdown/VM situation.
