VirtualBox update brings improved performance and 64-bit support

"although Parallels Desktop remains the best desktop virtualization program for Mac users."

I beg to differ. After some real-world benchmarks, it's clear to me that VMWare Fusion is 3 to 4 times faster than Parallels - fast enough to run real-time audio applications in a virtual environment (and believe me, this is no small feat). I haven't tried this with VirtualBox yet, but one can only hope. :-)
