Virtualize an operating system on a different platform and access all its functions and features. Access configuration settings and check the "virtual" hardware presented to each simulated system. Integrate older systems into modern computers, like a DOS module for Windows or OS/2 elements.

VirtualBox is an open source application to manage and run virtual machines. If you ever need to run a virtual (guest) operating system on your host machine that runs Windows, Linux, Mac OS X or Solaris operating system, you should check this program out. It is absolute free but includes almost all the features that the modern virtual machines must have.

Innotek, the original developer of the software was bought out by Sun Microsystems. In early 2010, one of the top 100 Fortune companies, Oracle, bought out Sun and is now the current development curator of this application.

Given the open source nature of the software, it is expected that it is available for multiple platforms. One can download the program for absolutely free from the program's website. One can also find an extension pack available for a free download that enables the support of USB 2.0 and other technologies under guest operating system.

There are some bugs here and there, but if you check out the development logs, you can see that the developers address those bugs pretty quickly in hopes that they won't loose the already existing valuable customer base. There were only 5 months in between two major releases, so you can see that the ball is rolling and the application is not abandoned but evolving. more

The old version is better than the new version because the new version is the version they are developing.

In my previous comment, I should have indicated that I went back to 5.14 instead of 5.18 (not 5.16). 5.18 was problematic for me.
