VirtualBox 3.0.0 Beta 1

VirtualBox is an application installed on an existing host operating system; within this application, additional operating systems can be loaded and run, each with its own virtual environment. For example, several Linux distributions can be hosted on a single machine running Windows XP; likewise, XP and Vista can run on a machine running Linux, and so on. There is a free for personal or evaluation use proprietary version and a GNU General Public License (GPL) version.

lol, people and their assumpsions of illlegal this, or legal that, Beastage do you REALLY REALLY care to assume he has a legal copy? i doubt you will lose ANY sleep NOT know the answer to that. If you do lose sleep over it, then you should find something else more critical to your own life to worry about.

All he (warwagon) was saying was his opinion on a product... thats it... end of story.

All sarcasm aside Beastage was just saying that VirtualBox does what it does for free and under a GPL license; which is a far cry from some of VMWares licensed offerings. Granted he is wrong (see NeoRaZor) but regardless, you had just as much of an overacted response to his comment as he did to to warwagon's.

Irony, meet... irony?

For the love of god. Does it have drag and drop? This is just getting stupid if it doesn't. I love Virtual box I think its a fantastic product. But the lack of drag and drop is REALLY driving people to other products. Sure you can use shared folders, but when you use the vm as a sandbox you really don't want your VM to have access to shared drives. Because of it i've switched back to Vmware.

I just create a separate folder which I then share in VirtualBox. Any files I need I can simply move into that folder. It's not the most convenient method, but it works.
