    Phoronix: VirtualBox 4.0 Beta 2 Is Already Here

    It was just on Monday that Oracle released Oracle VM VirtualBox 4.0 Beta 1 with the introduction of "extension packs", OVA format support, ICH9 and Intel HD Audio support for guests, a revamped user-interface in some areas, support for limiting a VM's CPU time and I/O bandwidth, and a number of other changes.

    Long time ago, doesn't really worry me though as VMware works. Not really motivated enough if I have a working solution. I've always have had better luck with the alternatives then with virtualbox for a number of things over the years.

    Yes to all of the above Kano. BTW it isn't limited to just the linux host as well, Windows host to windows guest has the same issue.
