VirtualBox is a great product and works smoothly on Lenny. Kudos!

There is a growing interest for VMs; for my next laptop I am considering a 4GB unix machine with some ready-to-use windows v-boxes (mainly for office duties).
It is amazing how all the development/productivity tools I use are nowadays platform independent -- or web based, such that everyone can choose its own OS of choice, regardless of the persisting Windows dominance.

yeah, the situation for who doesn't use a Microsoft OS is constantly going better :-) but
also VMs aren't a panacea. For example not trivial network configuration seems not as easy as base setup (but I haven't had the need to try yet).
