VirtualBox is being actively developed with frequent releases and has an ever growing list of features, supported guest operating systems and platforms it runs on.

VirtualBox is a community effort backed by a dedicated company everyone is encouraged to contribute while Sun ensures the product always meets professional quality criteria.

VirtualBox is a powerful x86 virtualization product for enterprise as well as home use. Not only is VirtualBox an extremely feature rich, high performance product for enterprise customers, it is also the only professional solution that is freely available as Open Source Software under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). See "About VirtualBox" for an introduction.

Presently, VirtualBox runs on Windows, Linux, Macintosh and OpenSolaris hosts and supports a large number of guest operating systems including but not limited to Windows (NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7), DOS/Windows 3.x, Linux (2.4 and 2.6), Solaris and OpenSolaris, and OpenBSD.


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.

Guest Additions for Windows and Linux. VirtualBox has special software that can be installed inside Windows and Linux virtual machines to improve performance and make integration much more seamless. Among the features provided by these Guest Additions are mouse pointer integration and arbitrary screen solutions (e.g. by resizing the guest window).

Virtual USB Controllers. VirtualBox implements a virtual USB controller and allows you to connect arbitrary USB devices to your virtual machines without having to install device specific drivers on the host.

Remote Desktop Protocol. Unlike any other virtualization software, VirtualBox fully supports the standard Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). A virtual machine can act as an RDP server, allowing you to "run" the virtual machine remotely on some thin client that merely displays the RDP data.

USB over RDP. With this unique feature, a virtual machine that acts as an RDP server can still access arbitrary USB devices that are connected on the RDP client. This way, a powerful server machine can virtualize a lot of thin clients that merely need to display RDP data and have USB devices plugged in.

Shared folders. Like many other virtualization solutions, for easy data exchange between hosts and guests, VirtualBox allows for declaring certain host directories as "shared folders", which can then be accessed from within virtual machines.

What is Software Piracy

Bookmark and Share

Software piracy is the unauthorized copying or distribution of copyrighted software. This can be done by copying, downloading, sharing, selling, or installing multiple copies onto personal or work computers.

What a lot of people don’t realize or don’t think about is that when you purchase software, you are actually purchasing a license to use it, not the actual software.

That license is what tells you how many times you can install the software, so it’s important to read it. If you make more copies of the software than the license permits, you are pirating.

Simply put, making or downloading unauthorized copies of software is breaking the law, no matter how many copies or people are involved.

Whether you are casually making a few copies for friends, loaning disks, distributing or downloading pirated software from the Internet, or buying a single software program and then installing it on multiple computers (including personal), you are committing copyright infringement—also known as software piracy.

It doesn’t matter if you are doing it to make money or not — if you or your company is caught copying software, you may be held liable under both civil and criminal law. Civil penalties can be as high as $150,000 per software program infringed. In addition, introducing pirated software into your computing environment can open you up to the risk of damage to your network through defective software or malicious code.

As the name implies, virtual memory is non-physical memory.

Windows uses virtual memory when it doesn't have enough "regular" physical memory to perform a task. When it does this, Windows uses your hard drive to store information that normally would be put into your Random Access Memory or RAM .

Virtual memory is simulated RAM. When you have used up all your physical memory, your computer will shift data to an empty space on the hard drive. The computer swaps data to the hard drive and back to your RAM as needed. If you don't have a lot of hard drive space left and you're experiencing lots of problems, lack of virtual memory may be why. When Windows runs out of memory (virtual and non-virtual), it just doesn't run all that well.

Why bother to add extra RAM to your computer when you can use hard drive space instead? Main reason - RAM is much faster. Whenever you're using a lot of virtual memory, you're slowing your computer down. The best work around is to get more physical memory. Minimum requirement for a computer with Windows XP as its operating system is 512MB and 1GB at least for Vista. RAM price has gone down nowadays and having a 1GB or 2GB for your computer is not that expensive anymore. The more physical memory the faster the processing of your computer will be and the more programs you can run simultaneously.

How to Increase Virtual Memory

If you find yourself running out of virtual memory, or keep getting messages telling you that you are, you might want to change from the default setting of “System managed size” or “No paging file” to a “Custom size” to increase your Virtual Memory to a more acceptable level using your computer’s control settings.

In Windows XP

1.Click on Start menu and right-click on My Computer and select Properties.

2.Select the Advanced Tab and select “Settings” under Performance option.

3.Under Performance options window, select the “Advanced” tab and click on “Change” under Virtual memory section located near the bottom of the window.

4.Under Virtual Memory, select “Custom size” under Paging file size for selected drive to manually set your computer Virtual Memory.

5.Enter the amount of Virtual Memory that you need to set in “Initial size” and “Maximum size”. You should choose the same amount for the initial size and maximum size. This will stop your CPU from constantly changing the paging file.

Tip: To stop your CPU from constantly changing the paging file, set the initial and maximum size to the same value. That is, 768MB for initial size and 768MB also for the maximum size. The value should be at least 1.5 times more than your physical RAM. For example, if you computer has 512MB of RAM, increase the virtual memory paging file to 1.5 * 512 = 768.

6.Click on Set.

When you are prompted to restart your computer, click Yes.

In Windows Vista

1.Click on Start menu and right-click on My Computer and select Properties and then click on the Advanced system settings.

2.Under System properties, select the “Advanced” tab and click on “Settings” under Performance section.

3.Under Performance options window, select the “Advanced” tab and click on “Change” under Virtual memory section located near the bottom of the window.

Note: By default, Vista is set to “Automatically manage paging file size for all drives”. Uncheck this option and select Custom size to manually set the Virtual Memory for drive C.

4.Under Virtual Memory, select “Custom size” under Paging file size for selected drive to manually set your computer Virtual Memory.

5.Enter the amount of Virtual Memory that you need to set in “Initial size” and “Maximum size”. You should choose the same amount for the initial size and maximum size. This will stop your CPU from constantly changing the paging file.

Tip: To stop your CPU from constantly changing the paging file, set the initial and maximum size to the same value. That is, 1500MB for initial size and 1500MB also for the maximum size. The value should be at least 1.5 times more than your physical RAM. For example, if you computer has 1GB of RAM, increase the virtual memory paging file to 1.5 * 1000 = 1500.

6.Click on Set.

When you are prompted to restart your computer, click Yes.

Tips and Warning

Play around with gradual increases until you are satisfied with your system performance.

Do no lower your Virtual Memory settings below the minimum allowed. This might cause system crashes and slowdowns.

Check on “Recommended” Virtual Memory settings under “Total paging file size for all drives” at the bottom of the window.

Success of a project when developed by an offshore software provider is largely dependent on the way the project is remotely managed from the clients side.

If you hope to make a project successful with very little input from your end as a Client, it is unlikely that the project will achieve success in the long term. The basic reason is very simple: you know your Service requirements best.

Software services companies working in another part of the world can only develop a solution based on the input provided by you.

Fairly large projects have a dedicated project manager who interacts with the offshore software team and acts as a virtual bridge between the Service and the software developers. If your project does not have dedicated personnel for it, there is no need to despair. You can follow some simple tips mentioned below and manage your project quite successfully.

The complete lifecycle of the software development process can be divided into smaller goals which can then be communicated to the team via email or by phone. It is a good idea to have a call with the entire team on Monday morning and run through the list of weekly goals that need to be achieved and then call again at the end of the week to evaluate if they have been achieved or not and what type of roadblocks were faced by them.

Time difference is one of the factors in offshore software development projects which can become a pro or a con depending on how it is managed. It is imperative that a "common" time zone is mutually agreed on by you and the offshore software vendor. This time should be used for communication and ironing out issues faced by the development team. Though it might take some time to get used to getting in to the office at 7 AM, it pays good dividends in the long run.

If there are issues, alert everyone in time: It is advisable that you keep a look out for early warning signals and warn the team up front rather than wait for things to correct themselves. Ninety percent of the time, the issue is not self-correcting but goes on to become a real pain to the entire team before additional effort is exerted to get it on track.

If someone in the offshore software team is doing well, comment on it: Encouragement and motivation are required even when you have hired a team with an offshore software service provider. Motivating team members with an encouraging email along with occasional gifts sent to them on regional festivals creates camaraderie as well as doing wonders for the project. At the end of the day remember that developers are human beings and they do need an occasional pat on the back.

Although a number of onsite project managers feel that project management tools are advantageous to the flow of a project, the core driver in a successful project will always be good project and human resource management skills.

There has been so much talk about Windows Vista but it seems that the house is divided. It seems inevitable for users to move up to a higher operating system but some are simply not willing to concede and surrender XP. If you look closely at the abundant blogs in the internet, many are filled with reasons why not to buy Vista.

On the other hand, there can be some good reasons to buy too. Naturally, we all want to be updated and move with the changes in technology. Other than this soon to be mandatory reason however, Vista actually has its charm and potential for usefulness. You should therefore get Vista for some good reasons.

User Interface
The new user interface is not only appealing to the eyes but easier to use and simply pulsating with life. Enhanced navigation includes live thumbnails and flip 3D features as well as various animated effects. Operating system messages are better written, understandable, more positive and more accurate. In many ways, the Vista interface experience has more depth, almost like interacting with a live creature.

Instant Search
Some simply see Vista as possessed with a degree of intuition when it comes to performing searches. The Vista Instant Search is of course faster than previous search function versions. Aside from the speed though, Instant Search is system-wide and can automatically perform its function at the start menu, control panel and Windows Explorer. It will also allow indexing through user determined data and categories.

Multimedia Applications
Any new Vista user will rejoice at the wealth of possibilities with Vista multimedia features. Windows Media Player for example features stacking and media sharing with other computers. Windows Movie Maker and Windows DVD Maker are also wonderful features. The former allows editing HD and DVR-MS videos and DVD burning. The latter supports DVD creation. Photo enthusiasts will also be glad with the new Photo Gallery which will let you manage, organize, edit, print and rate your photo files.

Parental Control
Parents now have an extra reason to give thanks. Now, parents can be away from home and not worry about their kids going over restrictions. With Vista, parents can block specific websites and content based on category or type and can even prevent downloads. Parents can also specify time limits on account use.

Internet Explorer 7
Probably one of the best features of the new Internet Explorer is better privacy and security. With the new technology used in Internet Explorer 7, users can actually be kept secure from websites with doubtful intent. The new Internet Explorer will also stop code from a third party from reaching you.

Meeting Space
Another great reason to buy Windows Vista is because of its peer-to-peer collaboration feature which will let users interact and share with members of a network. Desktops, work and messages can now be easily passed from one member to another.

Windows Defender
If you have had some terrible encounters with spyware in the past, then Windows Defender on Vista may be the best answer for you. Aside from scanning for spyware, it will also give you feedback on changes because of spyware.
