VMWare was (for me) somewhat easier to set up, because of Converter. They
both work well. (I have them on different computers.) I like the VirtualBox
interface better, and it seems to perform better when a Windows application
is doing heavy I/O, but that might be an artifact of running it on a
somewhat faster computer. VBox handles full-screen better.
As I posted here, I couldn't make booting off the Windows DVD work propertly
In practice they're very similar programs and either is more than adequate.
Note: theoretically Converter images can work with VirtualBox, but it did
not actually work correctly in my one trial.
