VirtualBox is a free and open-source hypervisor software that runs on Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Solaris. It can run nearly all x86 operating systems, including Windows, Linux, BSD, OS/2, Solaris, Haiku, as well as a limited form of Mac OS.
Running on CollabVM
CollabVM currently does not support using VirtualBox as a virtualizor. CollabVM 2.0 is planned to include VirtualBox support. When VirtualBox support is officially added, more information will be listed on this page.
