Android on VirtualBox

I happened to read this nice article on how to run Android on PC this evening. As I already had VirtualBox installed on laptop, I decided to give it a shot. The ISO download took a while. Once I set up the VM I booted it up and tried few things. It took me few seconds to figure out that escape key is used to close the window. Screen shots of the Live Android running in VirtualBox are here.

I could find a terminal emulator program in the list of applications and promptly launched vi. However, escape key in vi also closes the window :-(

H2G2 fans may find it amusing that Android was running on my laptop named Marvin.
