In the News In a move that would certainly shake up the computer industry quite a bit, IBM is reportedly in talks with Sun Microsystems about the possibility of IBM acquiring Sun. Sun is going through hard times at the moment, and has been actively looking for someone to be acquired by.

Not claiming to know what this will mean for the future of Sun, I personally fear for Virtualbox...

I wouldn't really. It's GPLed and in many ways it makes a far better desktop virtualisation platform than VMware Workstation. It can also be expanded in an infinite number of ways as well. There's nothing completely comparable to VirtualBox.
