NetBeans 7.0 dev running on Windows 7 beta in VirtualBox

I just had to try this out. The installation went smooth and Windows 7 started. After figuring out some small problems trying to install the guest additions (seems there some versioning issues here with the installer not detecting the Windows version). So here is how it looks in full screen mode - you have to imagine the Aero things since those are not available inside VirtualBox.

Wow - that looks nice - testing a new OS in VirtualBox... So what is the result? I am not sure, but everything worked out of the box, but this should not be a big surprise, since it is "Vista" inside Windows 7...

BTW, I got USB, seamless mode and networking working as well with VirtualBox.
