Freeware VM VirtualBox Feedback page updated:
Updated the page on Freeware VM VirtualBox (Updates/Feedback) with another report on problems with OS X 10.6(.3) Server guest in VirtualBox 4.x (assume latest v4.2.12 used). Said OS X 10.6.3 Server installed OK in Parallels 8 and suggested trying a later version of SLS with VirtualBox. (I included a link to the OS X Server 10.6.8 combo v1.1 updater download page.)
