VirtualBox update brings improved performance and 64-bit support

I would argue that you can comfortably use Vista on a host machine with less than 4GB of RAM. I have happily used Vista on a machine with 2GB RAM (half assigned to Vista), and even managed to get it running on a machine with 1.25GB RAM (750MB for Vista). I'm not suggesting the performance was amazing on the 1GB machine, but it was useable since Vista automatically disabled all the fancy graphics stuff when it detected I didn't have a 3D graphics card. Vista on the 2GB machine ran without any hitches.
