Sun now has its own desktop VM product - VirtualBox

I just read the news that Sun is buying innotek, maker of the open source desktop virtual machine product, VirtualBox. I used VirtualBox before and it was nice, but since it seemed like a small concern and it was not clear what it's long-term prospects would be, I moved over to VMWare.

But now it's powered by Sun, as a fan of open source over proprietary source, as a Solaris user (and as a Sun employee :)), it's time to take another look at VirtualBox.
