Cool Virtual Box


Virtual Box, without a question is the best.

On Windows i started off using MS Virtual PC (2004 SP1). I later switched the Virtual Box and just loved it! It had so many better features like USB support and non-Microsoft OS guest support. I still use it today in Linux.

I still must say vmware is in the lead. However VirtualBox is not far behind.

I think it was originally developed by a company called innoTek GmbH(sp?) (I first tried VB before it was bought by Sun)

Unlike many, I just need a way to evaluate various distros and OS's quickly without rebooting and Virtualbox fits my needs perfectly.

Even viruses work on it :P

I still haven't tried vbox for a long time. I use kvm now. But when I do I might like both equally
