RE: VirtualBox

 I have been using VMPlayer for a while and have several virtual machines 
that I kind of use on a regular basis. 

Unfortunately becuase of small incompatibilities, a number of vmware 
machines won't run on VirtualBox. Specifically they hang at agp440.sys, 
and if you remove that, they hang at Mup.sys. (Actually I think they are 
probably hanging on the driver *after* agp440.sys but need to get back to 
real work.) 

Ignoring vmware compatibility, I found it really easy to create a virtual 
machine, install Windows on it, and have it run. Network works, and 
validation was successful. GUI interface looks nice and has a logical flow 
to it. 

Not bad, I'll probably be using it instead of vmware.
