I was wanting to play around with something in a VM the other day.  I was curious what was available for free, if anything, for windows.   I quickly came across Virtual Box  ( http://www.virtualbox.org/ ).   Downloaded, Installed. No Problem!  Works really nicely.  

It was commercial software (by sun (now oracle)) that turned open source.  

In terms of a license it says :-

In summary, the VirtualBox PUEL allows you to use VirtualBox free of charge

  • for personal use or, alternatively,
  • for product evaluation.

An interesting feature it has is built in RDP.   Which is useful if you have a guest OS that doesn’t support RDP.  

Speaking of RDP…..  which I will in my next blog post… I learnt something REALLY useful the other day.
