VMWare to Virtual Box Migration

Last week I switched from VMware to VirtualBox at home. Why? Well, hack value mostly and I also wanted to learn more about VirtualBox having never used it before.

Bottom line, for home use it suits me very nicely and is far easier to get installed and running when compared to VMware Server which almost always required patching. The VirtualBox and Guest Additions (think VMWare Tools) installers both worked without a hitch. I even migrated my existing VMware Linux guests to VirtualBox, again everything went smoothly and my existing .vmdk disks worked just fine.
