Since it was in response to my explorations: no offense to the NetBSD
users and developers, but after trying to use NetBSD for a while, I
had to turn back to FreeBSD, completely. The performance of my
desktop environment has never been an issue for me, and if some
programs run 5% slower on FreeBSD, why would I care? (But they
probably not, in recent FreeBSDs).
I use to run a site that had an Alexa rating of less than 500,000 on
a 68k box. Can you guess what OS I used?
In my experiments, FreeBSD proved to be an altogether better
environment, with a superior developer support (just more people in
the project, perhaps).
I just done a remote install of NetBSD on a leased server because I
was unhappy with their chooses of OSes.

VirtualBox works well on FreeBSD, and was significantly easier to
configure than Xen on NetBSD when I used that. Also, that Xen (about
three years ago) used only one processor of a dual processor machine
-- I didn't like that at all and my Xen was quickly gone.
I don't see any reason that you can run NetBSD on VirtualBox if you
wanted to. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I would think you
would want XEN on a server and not any of these others.
