Review

This is a superb, mature and stable product that has changed the way I work with Linux. VirtualBox allows me to work with Windows when I have to at native speeds – this product has (finally) allowed me to ditch Windows as my primary OS at work. Using VMWare Player? This product blows it out of the water, and with work perfectly with your existing virtual machines. Awesome and detailed help system, and for Ubuntu users, they have repostories – installing is just an apt-get away.
Highly recommended.
