Oracle VM VirtualBox is a great product and a fantastic tool in every developer's toolbox. The ability to imitate a specific OS in a virtual machine can be extremely useful for testing applications or testing deployments. I also find it useful to be able to utilize certain software that may not be compatible with my chosen machine OS.

Some problems that I have encountered using VirtualBox have been in relation to disk usage. It is very easy for a VMs disk space to balloon and hard to shrink the disk size. For CPU intensive processes I occasionally have ran into performance issues.

It is very simple to use virtual box and it is simple to download. When using it, you may not even realize that you do not have the operating system that you had to source from virtual box

Easy and quick to use. Runs at sufficient speed even with 5/6 VMs running, and can handle a bridged network with ease.
Easy to disassociate from the host to ensure the environment built within VB is quarantined should anything happen, meaning no risk to physical hardware.
Quick to pick up. Quick to add new machines. Cloning feature very quick and comprehensive. I've never had a VM crash or freeze.
