Virtualbox comparison.

Posted 02-24-2012 at 09:01 AM by rich_c

I've been messing with Virtualbox a bit lately. I just thought I'd share my observations.

Windows Vista Business guest. - Took hours to install and many, many hours to apply all the updates! Tends to slow the host machine (Dell Optiplex 740, 4GB RAM, Mepis 11 64 bit.) to a crawl. Runs OK in itself...

Ubuntu 10.04 guest. - Installed and updated in 2 hours tops. Runs great and doesn't seem to impact the host machine's performance very much at all!
