I am not sure what you mean by VirtualBox. So many messages are going on in
this list, so I may have missed something.

If this is what I thought it was, then I would like to make one thing clear:
I will not allow Windows to be run on the machines we have in the lab. This
is not so much because I hate Windows. (I do not, I like it, and I think it
has its place.) It is just that we are working with Microsoft to make a
donation of hardware for running Windows - with remote logins from the Linux
machines for those special cases you need windows. Installing a virtual
windows machine will defy these efforts.
