Sun xVM VirtualBox 2.0.2 vydán

Od poslední verze Sun xVM VirtualBox
1.6.2
 uteklo hodně vody, a mezitím vyšly dvě verze. Nově vydanou verzi
2.0.0 vzápětí následovala opravující verze VirtualBox 2.0.2

VirtualBox 2.0.2 opravuje opravdu velké množství chyb (více než
30 chyb) původně vydané verze 2.0.0. Hodně chyb se týká zejména
platformy Linux a Solaris, přesto doporučuji přejít na novou
verzi.

    I believe what you said made a ton of sense. However,
    what about this? what if you added a little content? I mean, I don’t wish to
    tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a post
    title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Sun xVM VirtualBox 2.0.2
    vydán | Michal Zobec: Virtuální PC Blog is a
    little plain. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how
    they write news titles to get people interested. You might
    add a video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve
    written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little
    bit more interesting.
