    VirtualBox

    I wish VirtualBox had support for hardware-accelerated 3D graphics.

    With the VMWGFX virtual graphics device driver being open source, and allegedly of high quality. Can it be used for KVM/QEMU, Xen, VirtualBox?

      Host support would have to be written. I do not believe the host portion of the stack is OSS.

      Michael,

      I noticed Fusion 5 was just released, but have not found a compelling reason to upgrade. For 49.99, I can either have "40% faster Graphics" or a bag of OG Purple Kush. If you upgrade, can you please write a quick comparison (between ver 4 and 5, and not between the OG and ver 5) so we know what we're missing?
