Updated mine yesterday and works flawless. Much better than VMWare since it's much smoother.

It works nice on Windows, but on Linux, it is a waste of time.

I found that if you have a VM in a saved state, after updating, you can't restore the saved state. :(

In order to start the machine, you'll need to discard the saved state.

Not a huge deal, but it would have been nice to have a warning.

VirtualBox 4.1.12.77218

VirtualBox is a general-purpose full virtualizer for x86 hardware. Targeted at server, desktop and embedded use, it is now the only professional-quality virtualization solution that is also Open Source Software.

Some of the features of VirtualBox are:
  • Modularity. VirtualBox has an extremely modular design with well-defined internal programming interfaces and a client/server design. This makes it easy to control it from several interfaces at once: for example, you can start a virtual machine in a typical virtual machine GUI and then control that machine from the command line, or possibly remotely. VirtualBox also comes with a full Software Development Kit: even though it is Open Source Software, you don't have to hack the source to write a new interface for VirtualBox.
  • Virtual machine descriptions in XML. The configuration settings of virtual machines are stored entirely in XML and are independent of the local machines. Virtual machine definitions can therefore easily be ported to other computers.

Change Log - Link.

The following items were fixed and/or added:
  • VMM: fixed VERR_NOT_SUPPORTED and VERR_RAW_MODE_INVALID_SMP guru meditation due to an invalid reschedule to raw mode
  • VMM: fixed PDMCritSectLeave guru meditation under rare circumstances with SMP guests
  • VMM: proper Math Fault handling with certain legacy guests
  • NAT: fixed a socket leak under certain conditions
  • Storage: better sanity check against reading beyond end-of-file
  • Audio: fixed a crash in the NUL audio backend (4.1.10 regression)
  • HGCM: fixed a crash during savestate under rare circumstances
  • VBoxSVC: several locking fixes
  • VBoxManage: return the correct error code if controlvm savestate failed
  • Guest Additions: VBoxService should not crash on exit (4.1.10 regression)
  • Windows Additions: set the correct time stamp when a file is closed
  • Windows Additions: better help if the DirectX backups are not properly installed
  • Linux Additions: Linux 3.4-rc1 compile fixes

The recommended is 512 MB but if you have 3GB you can use 1 and that shall be fine for XP.

How much RAM does your Windows 7 use?

But 1GB for XP should be fine.

According to what you say on your profile, you have the Windows 7 ultimate. MS offers Windows XP mode for it. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/windows-xp-mode

When I first boot up it's usually around 500-600 mb but once I start my browser up and other things it's over a gig.

Now if I'm not using my VM, can my host machine still use the memory allocated for VB?
