Description

Oracle’s VirtualBox virtual machine software is the best free virtualization software; it started in German innotek in 2007 and was acquired by Sun Microsystems after it was acquired by Sun VirtualBox. Finally, since there is so much upstream, Sun was acquired by Oracle, and since then the software has been released under the company name Oracle VM VirtualBox. With this software you can easily install another operating system within your operating system. In fact, this software plays the interface between the host operating system on which the program is installed and the guest operating system installed inside the application.

Features

  • Compact and lightweight compared to similar software
  • Ability to install and load several different operating systems
  • Ability to host 64-bit operating systems (support for Intel VT-x and AMD-V)
  • Establish a network connection between the host and guest operating systems and allow file transfer between them
  • Folder sharing between guest and host operating systems
  • Easy mouse and keyboard movement between installed operating systems and hosts
  • Ability to take a snapshot of the operating system and retrieve it at any time
  • Using images or compact discs for the operating system
  • Support for USB ports and drivers installed on the host operating system
  • Command line support

Required system

Reasonably powerful x86 hardware. Any recent Intel or AMD processor should do

Memory: Depending on what guest operating systems you want to run, you will need at least 512 MB of RAM (but probably more, and the more the better). Basically, you will need whatever your host operating system needs to run comfortably, plus the amount that the guest operating system needs. So, if you want to run Windows XP on Windows XP, you probably won’t enjoy the experience much with less than 1 GB of RAM. If you want to try out Windows Vista in a guest, it will refuse to install if it is given less than 512 MB RAM, so you’ll need that for the guest alone, plus the memory your operating system normally needs

Hard disk space: While VirtualBox itself is very lean (a typical installation will only need about 30 MB of hard disk space), the virtual machines will require fairly huge files on disk to represent their own hard disk storage. So, to install Windows XP, for example, you will need a file that will easily grow to several GB in size

A supported host operating system. Presently, we support Windows (XP and later), many Linux distributions, Mac OS X, Solaris and OpenSolaris

A supported guest operating system. up-to-date information is available at Status: Guest OSes
