comment VirtualBox: Set Network Adaptor for exclusive use of Guest VM
the above picture is the NIC settings in the Host OS and there is no checkbox for the "VirtualBox filter driver". I don't know if this has been changed since Jan 2010, but with the release of Version 4 (currently using 4.0.0, latest release is 4.0.6) it may well have.

comment How to know whether BIOS has turned on the processor's Virtualization Technology or not?
True, but AFAIK VT is enabled by default in VB so unless this has been disabled by the user this is a reasonably good indicator.

comment Ways to reduce the disk size of Windows XP
AFAIK a vanilla (completely clean) install of XPSP3 will indeed peak at 1.5GB, but once you start throwing years worth of updates at it the size will increase dramatically. 12GB does seem a bit excessive though.

comment How can I get a faster connection on a saturated public network?
@Shark, Really? While Windows does have some background processes (windows update, etc) the effect is probably not enough to have an impact (and certainly not enough to warrant a OS change).
