Sun’s VirtualBox

Does this look strange to you, it should but thanks to Sun’s VirualBox you can accomplish this. What is this you ask?

Well instead of having to constantly switch back and forth between a virtual machine and your host machine when doing testing you have easy access to both. I’ve uploaded a few screenshots to show what I mean.
