I've noticed that a number of people here use DOSBox for playing older titles on modern PC hardware.
I am very familiar with VirtualBox, I use it to virtualize several operating systems. I have also read up on it's current 3d support.
My question is what is the advantage of something like DOSBox over VirtualBox?
Is it essentially for ease of use? With VB I have to install the actual DOS package and manipulate memory management, etc as I did back in the real dos days (presumably). Does DOSBox remove these sorts of configuration issues?
I'm considering running games that would have had requirements in the 100's of Mhz on an i7-2600k, so I'm not terribly concerned about virtualization overhead unless there's some specific gotcha that I don't know about
