Title: VMware Virtualization With OpenGL Still Smacks Oracle VirtualBox

Summary: "Earlier this year I said VMware's virtual GPU driver was

running fast for Linux -- in comparison to Oracle's VM VirtualBox 3D

guest acceleration support. This continues to be the case with VMware's

OpenGL stack leading the way with superior support and performance.

Recently I ran some desktop virtualization tests under VMware Fusion

4.1.3 and Oracle VM VirtualBox 4.1.18 from the Retina MacBook Pro with

OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion host. Even with the OS X host, VMware's 3D

support exposed to the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS virtualized guest was much faster."
