Virtual Box to offer OpenGL and DirectX support


Recommended Posts


Virtual Box to offer OpenGL and DirectX support for high quality graphic support and better gaming in a VM. Not that you would want to game in a VM, but to test something with full support for your GPU, it would be a nice option..

I just think any VM that makes better use of the GPU is always a plus. Especially when tring new linux distros and getting them to work properly because your stuck at 800x600 vesa mode in vmware because you can't get vmtools installed properly.

I'll admit that this is pretty sweet. specially when you want to check something like compiz, or see if we can start working out those bugs with nvidia drivers and flash (as I also have this problem.. and sick and tired of waiting for either nvidia or macromedia to jump on the damn issue..)

Whoa! Just thought of something that made my head spin....
