    Phoronix: Oracle Builds Upon VirtualBox With 3.2 Beta

    While Oracle has yet to put out OpenSolaris 2010.03 and they have disbanded other open-source projects formerly under Sun's umbrella, they are moving full-steam ahead with Virtualbox. This morning Oracle has put out the VirtualBox 3.2 Beta, which re-brands itself as Oracle VM VirtualBox...

    Nice find Grep is such a great tool, can dig up almost anything enywhere

    Would be a real shame if Oracle killed VirtualBox, as it's the #1 OS testing app for me.

    Experimental support for Mac OS X guests
    Is this legal? I always thought Apple prohibited use of OSX in virtual machines?

    This is a good functionality, you can't sue me just because I am capable of running you. I don't distribute your software, nor do I personally run it. So Apple can't do nothing about it.
