[News] New GPL-licensed VirtualBox Released

Hash: SHA1

Sun xVM VirtualBox 1.60 Just Released for Ubuntu Hardy Heron and other Os's!

,----[ Quote ]
| The application was initially offered under a proprietary software license. 
| In January 2007, after several years of development, VirtualBox OSE (Open 
| Source Edition) was released under GNU General Public License (GPL) version 
| 2. Currently, there is a proprietary version, VirtualBox, which is free only 
| for personal or evaluation use, subject to the VirtualBox Personal Use and 
| Evaluation License (PUEL) and an Open Source Edition(OSE), VirtualBox OSE, 
| which is free for commercial and private use, subject to Copyleft and other 
| requirements of the GPL license.

| The new release is again an evolutionary improvement which again introduces a 
| set of new supported machines. The new ownvership of SUN can only be seen by 
| numerous improvements in the Solaris support. Otherwise, the development of 
| VirtualBox seems to be just like usual: evolving, stable but always with a 
| set of new features.

VirtualBox: A Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, VirtualBox is an excellent application for virtualizing your 
| favorite operating systems. I use it to virtually run all of the operating 
| systems that we talk about here on LinuxHow2, such as Ubuntu, Fedora, Gentoo, 
| and  PCLinuxOS. Virtual machines are a great way to test new operating 
| systems, sandbox an OS, and quickly wipe out and reinstall problem operating 
| systems; it's becoming common to virtual an operating system, because of the 
| speed of use, and because said operating system does not directly interfere 
| with the host OS, if it's infected with viruses (as is often the case with 
| Windows) or you just plain don't need it anymore, it's as simple as one click 
| to delete it off your system for good.

| Back to the apps. Besides Firefox for Web browsing, there's Thunderbird for 
| mail, the GIMP for image processing, SciTE for text editing, Xmms for audio 
| playback, Gaim for text messaging, ghostview and Xpdf, Axyftp, the Abs 
| spreadsheet, the TightVNC viewer, CD-Rchive and a few more. There's enough 
| for me to get my work done, and that's pretty much all I ask.    


VirtualBox: The best virtualization program you've never heard of
