Virtualbox is a cross-platform virtualization software package from Oracle. It runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X systems. For our test environment, I’ve decided to install Ubuntu Server version 10.04 (LTS) inside of Virtualbox which runs natively on my Mac OS X system. When the virtual machine boots it will automatically connect to the Internet via my wireless network card which I would otherwise have to set up manually if I were installing Ubuntu Server on hardware.
