After reading a few posts regarding VirtualBox, I decided to give it a try, and install Windows 7 RC to try out.
The posts that piqued my interest were from:

July 2nd (Paid Article – Langalist Plus) Test-drive Windows 7 in a virtual machine
I have tried VMware and Microsoft’s Virtual PC 2007 SP1, with the Beta version of Windows 7, previously. I was able to get everything loaded, but could not get it to work with my DSL, nor my USB connection, so was limited in what I could do.
I downloaded VirtualBox v126.96.36.199 and installed it. Approx 15 minutes to install and configure. Then, I installed Windows 7 RC (build 7100) from the ISO I had downloaded. Everything works fine, in fact I wrote this post and published it using the Windows 7 RC virtual machine.
VirtualBox works well for me, so I recommend it.
My next thing, when I get the time of course, will be to try out the latest Ubuntu Linux, hopefully VirtualBox will make everything work for that also.
