virtualisation of the year

Vbox has to take the Oscars as it has come on in leaps for ease of use on open source. Ubuntu must have had a relationship with them in the past as it was easy to install on but other flavours of linux meant you had to do the trawling thing.Then get 'n' number of error messages and hve to worry the likes of yourselves.
