    Sun VirtualBox 2.1

    Just been reading through my RSS feeds (you can tell what kind of day I've got planned ) and noticed this story...

    Sun Releases VirtualBox 2.1

    One thing that caught my was

    full VMDK/VHD support including snapshots.
    Support for the competition. Certainly questions the value of VMWare Workstation or VMWare Fusion. Also OpenGL 3D acceleration. Certainly becoming quite the desktop vm product and free to boot!

    not exactly, it's an open format. The idea with open formats is that anyone can use them, like HTML

    thanks though, I'll be upgrading. Can't wait for the server version.
