VirtualBox 1.5.0 update includes seamless windowing

Innotek rolled out a significant update to its VirtualBox open source virtualization software this week. According to Achim Hasenmueller, managing director of innotek, the release of VirtualBox 1.5.0 for Windows and Linux marks the first time seamless windowing -- the ability to display a single Windows application on a Linux desktop -- is available for Linux systems.

Hasenmueller notes that the new upgrade includes serial port and Windows 64-bit host support, and supports IBM OS/2 Warp as a guest operating system. VirtualBox 1.5.0 now also includes a standards-compliant Intel PXE network boot agent, as well as several bugfixes and improvements to the GUI, as noted on the software's changelog.

This version of Virtual Box

This version of Virtual Box really working well, and on 2.6.22 (Gutsy for example), too.


Highly recommended for desktop virtualization on newest kernels.
