Oracle and SUN Oracle VM VirtualBox enables desktop or laptop computers to run multiple operating systems simultaneously, and supports a variety of host operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS X, most popular flavors of Linux (including Oracle Linux), and Oracle Solaris. Version 4.0 delivers increased capacity and throughput to handle greater workloads, enhanced virtual appliance capabilities, and significant usability improvements. Support for the latest in virtual hardware, including chipsets supporting PCI Express, further extends the value delivered to customers, partners and developers.

For now, but I wouldn't be so confident. The separation of core features and expansion packs is the first sign of doomsday. I'll still use VirtualBox and I hope I'm wrong, but I've got a very bad feeling about this.

The expansion packs were already separate for many users, as the USB and RDP were already propriety components (I'm not sure about the PXE components). It seems the only difference now is that they aren't included by default in the Windows builds, which, for me, is an improvement. I rarely used the USB features of VirtualBox, it is more often than not a source of frustration for me.
