Linux Journal Best Virtualization Solution Readers' Choice 2012

I'm proud to report that in the latest issue of Linux Journal their readers named Oracle VM VirtualBox the "Best Virtualization Solution" for 2012. We're excited to receive this honor and want to thank Linux Journal and their readers for recognizing us! 

This is the latest award won by Oracle VM VirtualBox, following a 2011 Bossie Award (best open source software) from InfoWorld, a 2012 Readers' Choice award from Virtualization Review, and several others. These awards help us know that people are using Oracle VM VirtualBox in their day to day work and that it's really useful to them. We truly appreciate their (your!) support.

If you already use Oracle VM VirtualBox, you will know all this. But, just in case you haven't tried it yet, here's a few reasons you should download it:
  • Free for personal use and open source.
  • You can download it in minutes and start running multiple operating systems on your Windows PC, Mac, Oracle Solaris system, or Linux PC.
  • It's fast and powerful, and easy to install and use.
  • It has in-depth support for client technologies like USB, virtual CD/DVD, virtual display adapters with various flavors of 2D and 3D acceleration, and much more.
If you've ever found yourself in a situation where you were concerned about installing a piece of software because it might be too buggy, or wanted to have a dedicated system to test things on, or wanted to run Windows on a Mac or Oracle Solaris on a PC (or hundreds of other combinations!), or didn't want to install your company's VPN software directly on your home system, then you should definitely give Oracle VM VirtualBox a try. Once you install it, you'll find a myriad of other uses, too.

Thanks again to the readers of Linux Journal for selecting Oracle VM VirtualBox as the Best Virtualization Solution for 2012. If you'd like to read the whole article, you can purchase this month's issue over at the Linux Journal website.

The 2011 GOOD DESIGN Award

Just a couple of weeks ago, we were awarded three different "preferred product" designations for both server and desktop virtualization in Virtualization Review's Reader's Choice Awards. And today, we're announcing we won the prestigious 2011 GOOD DESIGN award from The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Center of Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. This is the second time we've won this award, as were also honored (as Sun) in 2006 for our Sun Ray Series 2 Clients.

This is a really amazing award, and we're incredibly honored to receive it again. Looking through the archives, past winners include Apple's iPad, Macbook Pro, and iPhone 4, HTC Evo 4G, the Seagate Replica hard drive, Bose Quiet Comfort headphones, and the super slick Venue High-Definition Cabin Management System (can't wait to fly in a plane with that installed!).

Our congratulations to the engineers and developers who keep designing these groundbreaking products to help make desktop application access easier to manage, easier on the environment, and a bit easier on the eye, too.
