Virtual Box Updated (v.4.1.4)

Virtual box has been updated to version 4.1.4. It has seen a couple updates since I last blogged about it, but things have been crazy around here and I haven’t gotten around to blogging about it. For those of you who don’t know, Virtual Box is a great way to run Windows on a Mac. You can also run other operating systems if you choose to do so, and all within a “virtual box” running on your Mac. Download the latest version from the Box File Widget (I had to break it up into parts) or from their homepage. The following is a list of the changes from the changelog.
