I've had some crashing issues when manipulating Saved States in the UI, I've decided to stick with VPC 2004. I do like VirtualBox's ui and options though. pretty tasty

I've only used VMWare Player, and I think VirtualBox is faster than that one, but why don't you just download both VMWare Server (also free) and VirtualBox? I think the best way to determine which one is better is by trying them both

How's it compare to VMWare since I've heard that's better than Virtual PC, and also free.

I wouldn't say VMWare is better. I like VMWare, but have had issues recently trying to get Guest OS's to run Bridged networking through my main OS of Vista. VPC 2007 has been flawless for that.

What makes this different from the freely available Virtual PC 2004? Or the 2007 beta? Does it have any considerable speed differences?
It's open source and not limited to Windows (for the host)

I've just installed Kubuntu 6.10 on my Windows PC using this program. It's a very easy to use program, I got the system up in a matter of minutes.
I've tried Virtual PC 2004, and I have to say that VirtualBox is faster. It uses quite some CPU, but it didn't make my host pc unusable, unlike Virtual PC 2004 did. Kubuntu boots really fast, pretty close to native speed.
A funny thing I noticed when I booted from the Kubuntu LiveCD is that the vide and the audio was working right away. In VirtualPC 2004 I had to boot in safe mode or manually reconfigure the Xserver.

So yeah, I'm pretty happy with this program. I'm going to try installing Windows 98 on a virtual machine to play some old games. Should work out fine.

It keeps telling me I'm not a part of the vboxuser group when I try to run it but I added myself to it in KControl.

Edit: I got it. Had to log back out first. Downloading a few ISOs to try now.
