    VurtualBox gets big update with its 4.1 release

    According to The Register here: Oracle revs VirtualBox, mushrooms memory ? The Register

    The article is quite long winded and not easy to summerise heare apart from it allows the the hypervisor to access far more memory than it have been able to before, up to 1TB in fact, and upping the RAM limit for VM's. Also 4.1 has some graphics improvements and now allows for Windows Aero theams and transparency to work.

    You can download VirtualBox 4.1 for free from here: Downloads - VirtualBox

    hopefully it will now allow the software to delete vms on 64 bit win7 rather than having to remove them from the hdd manually

    I've never been a fan of that method. I prefer to keep VMs safe and secure until I'm really sure I don't need them, especially if you are using TechNet licences to create 'real' servers for testing.

    i see your point but usually if i delete it from the interface i no longer need it and/or need the disk space for something else
