VirtualBox 2.0.2

I’ve mentioned VirtualBox before when it first became open source. Now a major new release and some minor upgrades have brought its version to VirtualBox 2.0.2.

A review by the n*x*adm blog covers some of the excitement of using VirtualBox on Ubuntu to run those last few needed Windows programs after migrating to Linux.

“This is the new Virtualbox release that inaugurates a brand new user interface based on QT 4, which makes it look and feel great, just like a KDE 4 application…

“It’s isolated from viruses and malware of any kind, I can backup the virtual machine as easy as copying files, and it’s free software under the GPL.”

Personally, I run it on my Mac to have access to Ubuntu without needing to reboot.

    I am a big fan of Virtualbox. What are the main features of this release? Last one was the hability of displaying your virtualized apps as part of the regular OS.
