Out with VMWare – In with VirtualBox
Well, I’m not going to replicate their work, not to mention they were far more inclusive than I was going to be.
After making some posts on VMWare server, I’ve now started using VirtualBox … and what’s the verdict?
Well it’s still out … to start with I liked it alot, it loads the VM images far quicker than VMWare server, creating new images was a breeze (so is VMWare but it’s marginally easier).
On the flip side, the instances seem more … fragile. I’ve had my WinXP install blue-screen a few times and my debain 4.0 lockup. I think I’ve traced the Debian lockups to the screensaver kicking, but more testing required.
I’ll keep you posted.
