eWEEK’s positive VirtualBox 2.2 review

This week eWEEK has published a positive VirtualBox 2.2 review. Additionally, eWEEK provided a slideshow demo of VirtualBox 2.2 as well.

The reviewer, Cameron Sturdevant, praised the desktop hypervisor and noted, "VirtualBox now offers support for the emerging virtual appliance standard Open Virtualization Format, host-only networking that broadens how virtual machines communicate, folder sharing, and OpenGL and 3D graphics support. With these new features, the free xVM VirtualBox is an even more compelling alternative to the $189 VMware Workstation."

Overall, Cameron is quite positive about this release and stated, "Sun Microsystems’ xVM VirtualBox, the no-cost virtualization tool that enables guest virtual machines to run on a desktop computer, continues to improve its position as a potential challenger to VMware Workstation."
