VirtualBox "base" is free, but not the rest.
Beware of Oracle products - you should be very very careful with them. History shows that they will drop support for something if not remunerative enough or that they will at least build strong dependencies if it is.
And please don't understand me wrong. All companies are like that of course, but Oracle is in my opinion above the average.
(and btw. I liked VBx a lot when I tried it, but dropped it in favour of kvm because of doubts about the future and missing USB passthrough support. More or less the same with Xen, where I don't know exactly Oracle's involvement but I know that Oracle has at least a very strong position)
