Virtual Box Seamless Mode

Just discovered Virtual Box had seamless mode. Virtual PC has a lot to catch up! The latest version with seamless mode is still in beta… Here, I’m running Fedora 11 in virtual machine, sharing the same desktop as Windows 7 RC. Cool, isn’t it?

Some minor problems though. All the Linux applications, including the panels, appear as a window on Windows, so clicking on any Linux app will bring all Linux app to the foreground. Not too nice. Resizing windows doesn’t seem to work after a while of usage.

I wish Virtual PC can play well with Virtual Box. Launching IE 6 (Virtual Window), with Virtual Box running, froze the computer, requiring a hard reset. It could have given me a warning that I shouldn’t be running 2 VMs at the same time…
