virtualbox or virtualbox ose


i'm just wondering if anyone can tell me what's the major difference between the two closed and open source virtualbox editions (other than one being open source)

i have been using virualbox on Fedora 10 and now freshly starting with Fed 11... i want to know what are the advantages of using one over the other?

i looked up on package installer (software add/remove) and there seems to be only virtualbox-ose readily available for adding... it comes with akmod-virtualbox-ose and other stuff...

does the akmod-virtualbox work like akmod-nvidia? one-off installation?
