Sun VirtualBox runs 64-bit Guest OS on 32-bit Host

Sun's VirtualBox 2.1.0 (released on 17th December 2008) supports running a 64-bit virtual machine even when your host machine is 32-bit. That should like a really cool feature to me. It also supports OpenGL 3D acceleration. Both of these are experimental features, but it sounds like Sun is getting serious about virtualization with these offerings.

UPDATE: I've got another post about my first test run of VirtualBox here.
