After seeing my post on Free Virtualization for Mac, Colin was kind enough to give me a copy of VMWare Fusion for Mac.  I have to say, it was a big improvement over the free VirtualBox.  Not Free, but I had one mission for both:

Get fullscreen working properly on my 1200X800 MacBook screen.

With VirtualBox, I had to go in and edit the xorg.conf file directly to get my screen res working.  With VMWARE, it was just a matter of picking the right screen res.

Plus for VirtualBox, the VirtualBox tools install much easier on Ubuntu than the VMWare tools do
