I hadn't heard of Virtualbox until a few weeks ago. I tried it, and I have to say that I'm really impressed with it. I'm glad to see that it's being maintained and updated.

VirtualBox became high quality rare-ware for me after Virtual PC went "bad" with Windows Virtual PC.

Personally, I use VirtualBox for Linux guests and VMware for Windows guests. Though, I've noticed some issues when using Gnome 3 but other than that, it works fine.
