Virtualbox OSE seamless window applications

Today, I found a nice feature of Sun’sVirtualbox OSE: the usage of windows applications in a seamless window. This feature (which has been around for quite some time, I just never used it before) allows you to use your Windows applications on Ubuntu (through VirtualBox) in an application window as if you were working…on your Linux desktop. To use the feature, install the VirtualBox guest additions. To use the feature, just press (setting by default) Host key + L (Ctrl by default). You will get a warning that you’re entering the seamless mode. To go back to the default Virtualbox view, press Ctrl + L again. The screenshot below shows a simple application (Windows Notepad) in a seamless window on Ubuntu 9.10. Have fun!
