[Condor-users] How about adding VirtualBox as another option to the VM universe?


I have a feeling that VirtualBox is catching up very fast in the VM world.

Here at my university I also have several Windows machines on which VMware 1.0.10 does not work (and nobody knows why; funny hardware?), but VirtualBox works like a charm!

VirtualBox also comes with an API, which (I assume) can help Condor to do the same thing as what Condor does not with VMware.

Therefore I wonder:

1. Has somebody already done something along these lines?

2. I am willing to help, despite my limited knowledge of the API and VM stuff.

I think a VirtualBox VM universe could make Condor's virtual machining more up-to-date.
