Linux Linux is struggling on the desktop because it only has a small number of "great" apps, according to the Gnome co-creator. Miguel de Icaza, co-creator of the Gnome desktop, told tech journalist Tim Anderson at the recent Windows 8 Build conference "When you count how many great desktop apps there are on Linux, you can probably name 10," de Icaza said, according to a post on Anderson's IT Writing blog. "You work really hard, you can probably name 20. We've managed to p*** off developers every step of the way, breaking APIs all the time."

Generally, if the developer does not change how the application saves user data, it'll simply create a directory directly under the Windows user profile.

Virtualbox on *nix
/home/user/.virtualbox

Virtualbox on Windows
/documents and settings/user/virtualbox
/users/user/virtualbox

I gather it's the same for osX:
/users/user/.virtualbox
