Last Time I Tried Running VirtualBox...

Last time I tried running VirtualBox, there were compatibility issues. Having not revisited it, I'm wondering what progress has been made since. Not being a fan of monopolies and monopolistic corporate behavior, I'd really like to hear that there's more healthy products of this sort, ones with a future, ones able to dislodge themselves from the likes of Oracle (@DJV, voted up).

BTW, I was fine with Oracle when they were just Oracle. But, these "portfolio" companies appear to, shall I say, dilute the focus of their workforce and thus the quality of their products. Yes, they get more customers with a portfolio of products, but those customers eventually end up with lesser quality products. I fear it's not a healthy aspect of the market.
