Oracle and SUN Yesterday (today if you're in the US), Sun released the latest version of its virtualisation solution, VirtualBox 3.1. Among speed improvements and other smaller features, the biggest news is that Virtualox 3.1 introduces something called teleportation: you can move running VMs between machines - servers or clients, different architectures, different host operating systems, it doesn't matter to VirtualBox. Coincidentally, this reminded me of an idea I once had about moving running applications between machines.

This doesn't work. Teleportation requires the VM to be stored in shared storage. Hence, if you teleport your VM to your laptop, you won't be able to use it while on the train since the VM will not be stored on your local disk but on the network (and I doubt you can access your network from the train).
