Running in VirtualBox on a Mac:
[Darwin Kernel Version 11.4.2: Thu Aug 23 16:25:48 PDT 2012; root:xnu-1699.32.7~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64]
This was installed with the regular 32 bit DVD iso and not the VirtualBox 32 bit DVD disk.
From the PCBSD diagnostics:
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8700 @ 2.53GHz (315.22-MHz 686-class CPU)
Origin = "GenuineIntel" Id = 0x1067a Family = 6 Model = 17 Stepping = 10
real memory = 1073676288 (1023 MB)
avail memory = 1027092480 (979 MB)

IIRC I tried the 64 bit in VirtualBox shortly after the release. Seems that the mouse integration under the GuestAdditions did not work properly. And a while back I believe I tried PCBSD using the VirtualBox images but believe there were a couple of "issues" at that time - but don't remember exactly what they were now.
Back again at this point - thanks a lot for the rolling release.
