Should I port my Ubuntu VM to Virtual Box?

I've been spending a fair bit of time in a Linux VM, today I decided to try and get Docky to work, but it needs desktop effects.

"I migrated yesterday and have been using it all day.

Performance wise I find it is slightly faster than VMWare 6.5, graphic rendering is smoother, also driver installation procedure seem much less intrusive.

The upgrade is a smooth as silk, the VMDK works just fine in Virtual Box.

I tried out the 3D features, but I must say that running compiz on the VM is not smooth enough, I seem to be getting artifacts and general tearing."
