And yet another vote for VirtualBox (on a closed poll). Is this intentional jeremy? Just to list the choices?

Kind regards,

Eric

Traditionally, Jeremy does this. We get the chance to see the nominees and to suggest changes before voting actually opens.

Hi XavierP,

Thanks for pointing that out. So I'm a preliminary voter and will have to come back to vote again. Sorry for the inconvenience but since I've only been member since May 2009 I've never had the pleasure to participate in these polls.

Kind regards,

Eric

It will probably be reiterated in the community bulletin as well... I'm pretty sure that this comes up each year - the joys of a rapidly expanding community

VirtualBox FTW! I'ts free, it's easy to use, and you can even use it on dated hardware w/o too much trouble (I'm on a P4 people...a P4!)

Just wondering if it's true that qemu and kvm merged?

Saw this on the Gentoo wiki a little while back.

Regards,

VirtualBox is really nice (and I'm using it heavily at home) but I'm seeing Xen take off like mad at work.

I like VirtualBox because it has the look, feel and power of a project that people are paid money to create, but is yet open source.

VirtualBox #1!
