Oracle and SUN Sun has launched VirtualBox 2.2. Sun is adding support for the Open Virtualization Format standard to its VirtualBox virtualization software. With the OVF standard incorporated into VirtualBox 2.2, users can not only build virtual machines, but also export them from a development situation and import them into a production environment. Sun also is adding greater hypervisor optimization, 3D graphics acceleration for Linux and Solaris applications, and support for Apple's upcoming 64-bit Snow Leopard platform.

Just updated my VirtualBox to 2.2, installed new guest additions in the guest system and now I have stable and quite fast compositing with compiz (cube, wobbly etc all work as expected). Impressive!

Now install VirtualBox on your Guest and see if you can get compositing working. Would be interesting to see if you can nest OpenGL acceleration.
