Sun adds 64 bit guest, OS X GUI for Virtualization folks for free!

Sun is pretty serious about this business. Would Sun be shipping a ESX-like (ep, we all know that xVM is not really taking off) version soon out of all the development experience out of VirtualBox? I know, its a bit too late or that but you just never know!

Cloud Computing is coming and whether you like your own hypervisor there or not, desktop is definitely what Sun is poised for!

This now adds the ability to run 64-bit OSes on a virtual machine, an improved GUI on OS X and paid support subscription for its customers.

This new release comes only a few days after the release of the maintenance release 1.6.6 which already included some important fixes, like improved stability and performance on AMD CPUs that support AMD-V virtualisation, plus better SATA drivers, shared folders performance, improved support for recent Linux kernels, and some fixes for OS-X users as well. A full "change log" detailing the bugs fixed can be found over here.

Available in 32-bit and 64-bit editions, Sun's open source product available under a GPL licence allows running most modern OSes unequalised and itself runs on a wide range of host operating systems: Mac OS-X, Windows (32 and 64-bit), Linux, Sun's own x86 Solaris and OpenSolaris. Some die-hard OS/2 users have also donde a port of an older version.
