ML in a virtualbox?

Anyone able to run ML in a virtualbox? I'd rather play with ML in a virtual machine than upgrade the main OS. It's just personal preference.

Sure. It requires a lot of work. No additional kernel extensions necessary.

You don't need to install it over your main OS just to try it. You can simply partition your drive with Boot Camp or Disk Utility and install ML on the newly made partition.
