I agree re. Virtualbox - I'm evaluating it for desktop use, not for
the purpose suggested here,
and its quite impressive. The latest version offers direct access to
accelerated 3D graphics on the host. Also I put a virtual machine to
sleep yesterday when running a CAD style application, and started it
up later, the application picked itself up mid-stride and continued
on. Well, maybe I'm easily impressed.
