comment Time machine friendly virtual machine (VirtualBox) image files?
For OS X I put the VDI-files on a "file-mounted-as-a-disk" file system which was sparse (i.e. consisting of a lot of small files instead of a single large one). This delegated the problem from virtualbox to the operating system.

@Kangarooo consider adding links for further reading for those interested. Anyway, this clause has previously caused e.g. VMWare Fusion to explicitly check installation media to ensure it was a Server version.

comment ssh _from_ Linux _to_ Windows: Which editor to use on Windows machine?
When I say server I mean it as in "Where the ssh daemon is running", not as the flavor of Windows. If you have it running with Windows 7, I'll give it a go.
