Review of VirtualBox Review

Daniel Roe
Poster: Daniel Roe @ Mon May 24, 2010 9:24 pm

VirtualBox is an open source x86 virtualization program. To put it simply what that is:

I've been running into more and more reasons to boot into Windows lately, so today I decided to stop rebooting all the time and get a virtual machine program. I've been burned before when I purchased Parallels, so I decided to find a cheaper and better way.

Parallels charges for every version, and each version EXPIRES when used with a newer version of OS X. The upgrade costs nearly as much as the program itself, so it's quite the motherfucker.

So I googled, found VirtualBox, started downloading the 70mb file, and decided to read a review to see if those precious few seconds of waiting were worth my time (the internet has left me with crippling A.D.D.). After reading the Macworld review, I nearly stopped downloading the file, which says a lot, because in chrome, that button is ALL THE WAYYYY DOWN TTHEEERRREEE. Fortunately, my laziness won out and since VirtualBox is FREE, I decided to give it a few minutes of my time before dropping another benjamin just to run Internet Explorer.

After starting VirtualBox up and getting it up and running with a few clicks and in under 45 minutes (44 minutes waiting for Windows to install/configure), I've decided to make a few humble corrections to the Macworld review:

An while we're at it, let's alter a another of their fuck-tarded reviews:
