VirtualBox - An Open Source Virtual Machine

<< < (3/3)

Hey guys,

I know this is a relatively old thread, but I was searching here to get some insight in regards to virtual machine software, and this looks like a good thread.

I just looked at some videos of the VirtualBox, and it looks great.
I was wondering, from your experience, is VirtualBox the better choice among the competing products?

Personally, I am looking for a lightweight way to test other operating systems.

Another question that bothers me a little - is this completely isolated from my host PC?
I mean, I dont want to mess things on my host - I want to be able to easily remove the virtual machine without having to clean my host after it.


Now I tried Virtual Box with Windows 7 and I must say, it is definitive much faster than Virtual PC due to its experimental Direct3D Support.  :Thmbsup:

@SectorSeven:  Yes, to me it is the easiest, most stable, and best VM I have used.  I absolutely love it and have been using it for a couple of years.

Thanks guys.
Looks like it is getting good feedback across the board.
