With my shiny new Intel Mac I can finally run the various virtual  
machine solutions :-) Just started with installing Sun's xVM  
VirtualBox for now:


Then grabbed the latest Soas iso:


And then followed the below steps, you only need steps 1...21, the  
rest is if you want to build vdi files for others to use:


Here's a quick screen grab of the 3 vms tested so far, the prebuilt  
Soas-7.vdi (middle) looks to have some extra tricks I'd like to work

little small). I have the vm networking set on the default NAT, and  
they can all get to the jabber.sugarlabs.org server and do basic  
collaboration i.e Chat seems ok, but Write does not – haven't nailed  
that down yet, tempted to start testing all this with known working  
OLPC builds such as 767 and 801:
