positive review of VirtualBox 2.0,
Steven Vaughan-Nichols examined the
latest release, noting the remarkable number of supported operating
systems as well as the improved performance and 64-bit support.
In commenting overall about his testing, Steven said, "In every case, my installations of VirtualBox and then the guest operating systems went flawlessly."
In addition to the performance, the program's small footprint and support for graphics and networking adapters were highlighted.
Steven noted, "VirtualBox runs extremely well. Over the course of almost a week of constant work on the systems, I couldn't find a single Windows or Linux program that didn't run correctly on a VirtualBox guest."
|Overall, Steven was quite pleased with VirtualBox, and concluded, "VirtualBox is equal to the purely proprietary VMware Workstation and better than most other open source desktop virtualization programs ... open source VirtualBox is the desktop virtualizer of choice."|
