    Default Oracle Ends The Week With VirtualBox 4 Beta 4

    Phoronix: Oracle Ends The Week With VirtualBox 4 Beta 4

    Oracle's been on a wild ride the past few days. Besides Oracle's second quarter earnings having beaten their own expectations and that of the street, they've been releasing updates this week to a number of their Sun-acquired open-source projects.

    Release early, release often. I like it Finally, something Oracle is doing right, unlike OpenSolaris.

    Well RC3 had fully broken cd/dvd device support, so RC4 is just a hotfix...
