Oracle VM VirtualBox is a free and open-source hypervisor for x86 computers from Oracle Corporation. VirtualBox may be installed on a number of host operating systems, including: Linux, OS X, Windows, Solaris, and OpenSolaris. There are also ports to FreeBSD and Genode.
It supports the creation and management of guest virtual machines running versions and derivations of Windows, Linux, BSD, OS/2, Solaris, Haiku, OSx86 and others, and limited virtualization of OS X guests on Apple hardware.
For some guest operating systems, a “Guest Additions” package of device drivers and system applications is available which typically improves performance, especially of graphics.
