Ubuntu 8.04 Beta in VirtualBox on OpenSolaris

Giving a beta a try is easier with VirtualBox. Beta within beta, in fact, since VirtualBox seems to be in beta on OpenSolaris.

All I had to do to get started with the install was mount the beta Ubuntu .iso as a CD-ROM. What's not working yet? Looks like screen resolution is stuck at 800x600, and USB does not get cabled through correctly.

Last time I tried to do the same thing with VMWare, I had to find someone with VMWare workstation. Kind of expensive if all you want to do is give some beta software a whirl.
