对于VMWare、Virtual PC这些虚拟机软件,可能大家都比较熟悉。VirtualBox是德国一家软件公司InnoTek所开发的虚拟系统软件,它不仅具有丰富的特色,而且性能也很优异。更是开源的,成为了一个发布在GPL许可之下的自由软件。VirtualBox 可以在 Linux 和 Windows 主机中运行,并支持在其中安装 Windows (NT 4.0、2000、XP、Server 2003、Vista)、DOS/Windows 3.x、Linux (2.4 和 2.6)、OpenBSD 等系列的客户操作系统。假如你曾经有用过虚拟机软件的经历的话,相信使用 VirtualBox 不在话下。即便你是一个新手,也没有关系。VirtualBox 提供了详细的文档,可以助你在短期内入门。
在10月18日已更新到了 1.5.2 版。这只是一个 bug 修订版本,主要解决了在图形用户界面、BIOS、VGA、VMM、网络、以及 VRDP 等方面的问题。此外,VirtualBox 1.5.2 也包括些许改进,如改进了在 Linux 主机上的键盘处理、NLS、与 Linux KVM 的兼容性、MAC 地址处理,在 VM 关闭对话框中增加了 ACPI 关机选项,支持其他的 RDP 客户端,Linux 附加程序支持 X.org Server 1.4 等等。
