"All in all 4 stars from me"

March 24, 2010  |  By nobody2007

 |  Version: VirtualBox 3.1.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
One star less, because my USB stick (SanDisk, FAT32 format) is not recognized. For me as an occasional user of VirtualBox this app is very fast. For my needs perfectly adequate. Bootcamp excluded, the other alternatives cost much money. VB is freeware. Many thanks to the Dev.

"What a GREAT app!! Just what I've been waiting for."

February 25, 2010  |  By DavidCPleasanton

 |  Version: VirtualBox 3.1.4

Pros

Easy to setup and use. Works perfectly. Transferring files from PC is almost too easy. Bye-bye to Bill Gates and his "OS-of-the-month-club".

Cons

None. Can't think of one shortcoming.

Summary

Anyone who is tired of the endless OS changes from Microsoft and wants the ease of a Mac now have no worries about being able to switch and still keep any old PC files. This is one of the best apps on the market.

"Love this free program"

February 20, 2010  |  By PiCASSiMO

 |  Version: VirtualBox 3.1.4

Pros

I can work all my Windows applications and peripherals for free on my Mac.

Cons

I have no cons.

Summary

Can't really complain about this free program... where I have both Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my iMac with OS X 10.6.
