A few general questions about this then, directed at anyone:

I've been using VirtualBox on OSX for a while now with both Windows XP
and NetBSD/AMD64 as guest machines. There are a few things that annoy
me but since it's free, I can't really complain. I've heard VMWare
uses less memory and might be faster than VirtualBox, can anyone
confirm this?

Also, is there any NetBSD (guest) specific reason why I would want to
spend money on VMWare Fusion instead of VirtualBox?
