    I found this while surfing around. I haven't tried it out yet but it looks interesting for testing builds.

      I already have it installed and it is much faster than ms virtual pc. I like it very much and being gpl for the basic one is a bonus also.

        Had some time to look at the Virtual Box software. WOW :banana:.....this thing is cool....and it's free :clapping:Webmedic.....you're right about it being fast. Man it smokes Qemu by a mile. If only the project could boot this fast for real. I like the control button thing also for toggling back and forth between virtual machine mouse and keyboard and real. It takes a little fiddling to figure out how to use it. Still fiddling.

        @Webmedic

        What settings do you use as far as the virtual HD and the memory? I started with 768 HD and about 368 memory.

          I'm only using 128 megs for mem and 2 gig for hard drive. Also I did not use the dynamic sizing hard drive as I have heard it is slower.

            This thing has virtual networking and usb support. It also shows the system info desk top thing without munging it up :clapping:

              The GPL version lacks the USB support and some of the other cool stuff. The consumer version with all the fancy extras is still free for personal use though. Interestingly enough, this comany is the same one that used to work with Connectix on Virtual PC for OS/2.

              Cheers
