VirtualBox
Sun xVM VirtualBox
After an initial test of VirtualBox a few years back the blogger from VMWare and xVM gave it another try and was amazed to see that it not only ran just FreeBSD, but other OSes as well. He notes, "Sweet. Seems after the acquisition, Sun couldn't resist improving it."

Larry from LEHSYS highlighted Sun Microsystems for providing a "perfect solution" in VirtualBox.

Blogger Keith from The Tech Blog noted that following an article on VirtualBox, he did a quick download and installation, stating that everything hit off "like a rocket." He also said, "You will like it. Oh, and it handles video like no body's business along with 3D acceleration."

NetBeans
Antonio from LambdaBeans updated readers about the upcoming release of NetBeans version 6.7, and wrote that the latest upgrade included improved support for inter-module dependencies. Kapil Sharma recommended the use of NetBeans to create, test, debug, and deploy JavaFX applications for the desktop, browser and mobile platforms. In Ignite Real-time, Sam Halliday noted that he discovered the "awesome collaborative editor feature" in NetBeans.
