I've been a VMware fan but this year I've only used VirtualBox and their 4.2 release was just awesome. Works like a champ. No less than a first grade product.

Regards.

What is the difference between Oracle VM and VirtualBox?

VirtualBox is a VM software owned by Oracle!

Oracle VM is based on Xen and is in no way related to VirtualBox, which Oracle obtained via the Sun acquisition (and was originally an innotek product).

I voted for qemu, because it's more versatile than the rest, can emulate more architectures. VirtualBox is OK for x86 and x86_64, though.

I changed from VMWare to VirtualBox a while back - haven't needed anything else ever since

no DOSBox, if it counts? I might have voted for something else, anyway, but it is kind of nice... and what about AQEMU?

^ I think AQEMU didn't have to be a separate option because it's just a GUI front-end to QEMU. Just my opinion.

Regards.

AQEMU is a front end to both QEMU and KVM (and maybe more)... but I see your point.
