Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Hello, thanks for an awesome project. I use it for a pre-made LAMP development environment:  http://drupal.org/project/quickstart.

My users are asking me whether they should install the i386 or amd64 version.

Could you please add a "System info" dialog to the Virtualbox host UI?

Basically, CPU info, host OS info, AMD-V/VT-X extensions enabled, etc. For a big bonus, "This system can/can't run a 64-bit guest." Other things could be added (3d support, USB, etc) but for now just the 32/64 bit info would be great.

This might seem trivial, but would greatly simplify supporting my users, saving them alot of trouble choosing which guest to download, and helping me help them.

Thanks again for a great project,

Mike

Hard to say. All that information can be found at other places but we will consider adding some of these information.
