That brings a question to mind.

Will VirtualBox run on DragonFlyBSD?

OpenBSD, FreeBSD, and OpenSolaris are officially supported by VirtualBox
as per their website, and though it's not mentioned on the site, Solaris,
PCBSD and NetBSD are virtual machine options in VirtualBox when creating a
virtual machine.
