VirtualBox V5.0.0 OSE for OS/2: new development started

Somehow by surprise a new attempt to port a current version of VirtualBox OSE to OS/2 was started in the beginning of August 2015. The last working version was VirtualBox V1.5x OSE from the year 2008. Another surprise, bww bitwise works GmbH teamed up with to work on a current OS/2 port of VirtualBox. This is the first step of (the part of Mensys that was responsible for eComStation) to support new software developments on OS/2 and eComStation. The development team already made some progress, the first target is to get the VBoxheadless VM up and running before doing the next steps. VMs like to have enough of RAM, hopefully it is possible to use RAM above the 4GB line with PAE and the help of the new QSInit loader.
