    Nice...Vbox is getting better and better with each release. The teleportation feature is a must for easily moving VM's from one physical host to another. Think VMware will have to consider Vbox a serious competitor

    With the kind of "stability" that VBox has? I doubt it I was never able to let a Windows XP VM run for more than two days, then it craps out. VMWare keeps running and running indefinitely.

    Perhaps that's some obscure bug...hopefully more people report issues like that so that they can be fixed
