Setting up VirtualBox with OpenSolaris as a Guest is a Breeze

This weekend, I decided that I wanted to play around with VirtualBox so I could get OpenSolaris up and running on my laptop.  I was hoping that the installation and setup would go as smoothly as other vendors solutions.  I was pleasantly surprised at just how smoothly everything went.  In just a few minutes, I had installed Virtual Box (simple click of the button), created a new virtual machine (a wizard walked me through the setup), and had an OpenSolaris virtual machine up and running.  The ease of use really surprised me.  I didn't even need to bring out any manuals for the simple setup I was trying to accomplish.  All I can say is way to go VirtualBox.

It really is a cake-walk :-) Just tried the new OpenSolaris 2008.11 RC1: http://blogs.sun.com/amitsaha/entry/open_solaris_2008_11_on
