More VirtualBox reviews…

1. Product Review: Sun VirtualBox — VMWare Tips, 11/02
Rick Scherer, who was using VMWare workstation 6.5 virtual machine, wasn’t interested in VirtualBox until he went to a product road show. Rick commented, "First thing I noticed was the installation of VirtualBox, it was extremely easy and straight forward… Long story short, VirtualBox is an excellent type-2 hypervisor, it is ported to all major O/S distributions and I would highly recommend it if you’re looking for a small, quick and easy to use virtualization program."

2. Shiny new Linux software — I’ll give it some extra thought, 10/29
Jon Jennings spoke about the upgrade VirtualBox received saying, "VirtualBox got an upgrade to version 2. Major new feature: the ability to host 64-bit guests – the previous versions could only run 32-bit guests, even if your host machine was 64-bit. As with any major new release, VirtualBox 2.0.0 appeared to have a couple of issues and it wasn’t clear whether the first bug-fix release, 2.0.2, had cleared them all up."
