It's a definite possibility!

However I can't find any good comparisons. VMWare Player would also suffice, 
for example (I can create the VM with something else, that's not a problem). I 
have VirtualBox running on several of my PCs (mostly Linux boxes though) and 
quite like that, and of-course I could even look at Microsoft's VirtualPC (no 
idea what it's like, never tried it). And of-course there are other alternatives.

In theory, I would imagine that VMWare Player *should* be the best one, as it 
is just a "player", but I don't know if there's any good facts to back up the 
common sense.
