Browsing around the net, there are several viewpoints on the future of these Sun products, and the OpenOffice.org team has even issued a statement itself.

VirtualBox wont be killed, prepare it to get a huge boost instead! It wont be closed sourced for most part. I think Oracle will develop it to be a direct competitor to VMWare. Remember that most of the VMWare products are free to use and you have to pay for support. I really dont see them trying to offer VirtualBox for a fee against VMWare ESXi which is free.
