  1. I currently use virtualbox too. If you can accomplish all your goals with virtualbox, then no need to move to vmware. Most businesses use vmware because it's been around for quite a while and you can get paid support.
  2. hmmm...could you help me out with this particular problem-
    you see i have an internet dongle, uses a usb port to connect. i can't get the device to work in virtualbox though! so no internet in my virtual machines so far :-p

    Not sure about the dongle as I don't have any programs that use it. For networking, go to the network settings.

    Under adpater 1:
    a) make sure it's enabled.
    b) attached to: bridged adapter
    c) for name, select your real network adapter
    d) adapter type: PCINet Fast III
    e) promiscuous mode: deny

    I'm using version 4.1.4r (yes, I need to upgrade it).

    I just downloaded the virtualbox extension pack. they say it adds support for usb 2.0...lets see if that helps. i'll inform you asap.
