    VirtualBox 5.0.0 is out

    Just noticed that there's a new version of VirtualBox out, version 5.0.0.

    One thing that I'm hoping it will do is emulate detachable USB drives... this is mentioned (although I'm not sure I've got it working properly - I'm hoping to convince Windows it's a USB drive to attempt to make a Recovery Drive).

    Hi there

    USB stuff was one reason why I gave up on VBOX and stuck with VMWARE instead. However it will be interesting to see if others have decent success with the build.

    Another reason I didn't like VBOX was its support of accelerated graphics and 3-D was poor to non existent. Be interesting to see if that has been improved in this build too.

    Just to add that I think my initial problems with Recovery Drives on a virtual USB were more because the Recovery Drive function in Windows 10 is currently busted, rather than a problem with emulating USBs in Virtual Box.
