Lets not forget VirtualBox!

We did cover virtual box in the past and will be using this posts to give VirtualBox some coverage:

VirtualBox 1.4.0 was realised on June 5, 2007 for Windows and Linux. It now contains support for 64bit Linux Hosts, as well as better networking and storage solutions, (for full details please see: Changelog.)

I have tried a earlier version of VirtualBox, but had limited success installing it. The new version installed perfectly.
I used Automatix in Ubuntu 7.04 (”Feisty Fawn”) to install it. Yet there are many other binary versions, including a beta version for OS X, (Intel Macs only). For downloads please see: VirtualBox Downloads.

So far I’m very impressed with VirtualBox. In my opinion it’s the best virtualization software I have tried to date. I’ve found it professional, and easy to use. I feel like the programmers have really thought about how to make this a good product from a user standpoint. Also it is OpenSource, what a wonderful bonus.

I am watching VirtualBox closely (like all other virtualization products). Link
