Hardware Virtualization on Mac
VirtualBox 2.1 now fully supports hardware virtualization on Mac OS X hosts (shown in parameters in center of screen).
VirtualBox ably handled running Windows 2000 Server, allowing us to run legacy applications.
The equivalent of VMware Tools, VirtualBox Guest Additions provide ease-of-use features, including mouse integration.

VirtualBox runs a wide variety of Windows and Linux operating systems; the latest version of Ubuntu is shown here.
