Managing virtual machines on your desktop or someone else’s is often a hassle. And it gets expensive. Enter Oracle’s free utility, VirtualBox. It’s a free virtual machine manager — and it’s as useful for enterprise managers and IT pros as it is for geeks who just want better virtualization control.
With a new version in December, VirtualBox — originally from Sun — has more features than ever. And it supports Linux (2.4 and 2.6), Windows NT, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista and Windows 7 as well as Solaris and OpenBSD. It even supports OS/2.
