Virtual Box 1.5.0 released

Innotek's people amazed me with the new version of Virtual Box.
Virtual Box is an open source virtualization system (free and libre) that allows us to have virtual machines on a host operating system.
I downloaded and installed it in a matter of minutes (I use ubuntu). The installation was a breeze. To install a virtual machine was truly simple.
What amazed me the most was the 'Seamless mode' that allows to have host operating system windows mixed with the guest operating system windows.
I am lover of virtualization, due the great benefits that provides us. This is great news for me, since other solutions such as VM Ware Server (free, not libre) are not always easy to install and implement.

I saw it at genbeta.
You can download it at virtual box's site.:
