Post Virtualbox


In the future, I'll often need to run several VMs. I don't have any experience with virtualization, yet. With this posting, I want to investigate if FreeBSD can be used for this.

FreeBSD would run as 64bit OS on a multicore AMD machine (which I haven't bought yet).

It looks like virtualbox is my only (reasonable) choice on FreeBSD.

- Does everything work out of the box, e.g. usb, sound, networking, drag and drop?

- What is the performance loss? Can I watch youtube videos on a somewhat modern computer?

- It is my limited understanding that virtual box can use VMWARE images as well. Is this correct?

- Can I create images from an installation iso with virtual box?

- Can I use virtualbox images under VMWARE as well?

Is there a reason why I shouldn't run Virtual box on FreeBSD?
