Well, I installed the 64 bit Devolpers edition. The full one. I am on FreeBSD
amd64 host. Except the guest additions, NO ISSUES whatsoever.
My first install was on my Dell Vostro laptop. Core 2 Duo and gave it only 1 G
I am just about to install it on my Phenom II home desktop. FreeBSD host amd64
FreeBSD since 2.2.8 [not Pro-Audio.... YET!!] (99% winblows FREE)
