This seems like a good idea. The UI is looking a bit tired on some newer OS releases.

I use Arch Linux with Plasma 5.7.1 and Qt 5.7.0. After upgrading Virtualbox to 5.1.0 toolbar in my Windows 7 guest became either unresponsive at all or realy slow to response in any action. Also Windows cursor looks like black and white.
