VirtualBox 3.2 beta allows virtual Mac box

VirutalBox 3.2 Beta 1 was recently released with a new feature that will allow you to virtualize OS X. Right now the virtualized OS X will only run on Apple hardware but there is potential to get it running on Windows according to Life Hacker.

Typically a user running OS X would run a virtual Windows environment to access programs and features not available in OS X. Now a user could eventually run Windows with a virtual instance of OS X available to run programs or features that Windows lacks.

Along with the added support for an OS X guest the name has changed to Oracle VirtualBox since Sun Microsystems was bought out by Oracle in January of this year. They have also added multi-monitor support so you can take advantage of multiple monitors in your guest operating system. Along with pretty extensive list of major and minor updates and bug fixes.
